I’m not bragging, but there are a lot of cool things about my job as the NE Local Food Coordinator with Taste the Local Difference. I get to hang out with other local farmers, producers, and small business owners; I get to eat the food they’ve grown or created; drink the libations they’ve conceived; partake of their businesses’ inventions; help put on events celebrating their work; and tell everybody how great this region of Michigan is because of these people and their labors of love. It’s a pretty sweet deal.
Two winters ago I spent an entire hour updating my star ratings on Netflix to dial in my preferences.
It was worth my time. Like driving to the U.P., or rising early to exercise. At first it seems daunting, but soon you’re saying, “I can’t wait to do THAT again!”
