Michael Harding is a proud uncle and brother always. He is a public servant by day (barista), and depending upon the season, a snow shoveler, gardener, and stargazer at night. He’s been surrounded by “stars” his entire life. He is a Finnish American, Yooper, Michigander, Chicagoan, city slicker, berry picker, and a cosmopolitan redneck who is addicted to caffeine and has been known to occasionally pick up and move whenever he feels like it’s time for him to take a vacation.
Michael has never met a person he didn’t like, and he loves to spend as much time as possible with his many friends, family, and pets—preferably in the great outdoors with a cup of coffee in hand. He hopes to continue his career in public service by shedding light on the darkness that prevents the beautiful people, loving souls, and brilliant ideas that exist or are trying to exist in our wondrous world from shining brightly and boldly. Let’s light up the darkness!
Michael never officially completed college, but he is well educated in other ways. He is an engaged and attentive lifelong student of the fascinating world that surrounds and hugs him. Besides our planet and sky, some of Michael’s other teachers have been his curiosity, friends, family, and strangers he has not yet had the privilege to meet personally and get to know. He promises always to do “write” by you while keeping in mind that actions speak louder than words.
