Mike Martin is a member of my extended Arkansas family. He truly embodies the prayer of St. Francis in all ways. Mike walks in a light of child-like, Christ-like love for all God’s creatures – both people and animals alike , and he is a miracle. The fact that he walks is a miracle. Mike recently suffered a “hangman's break”, or the “Superman break” (this is the same break actor Christopher Reeve had.) Mike walked into the medical facility following his accident (to the astonishment of the medical team.) After multiple examinations by specialists, and a lengthy and chancy surgery, Mike walked out of the hospital, 2 days post-surgery. He was in the process of renovating a home for him and his dogs, Bobo and Josie May, when the accident occurred, and of course, plans and money allocations took a detour.
I have chosen some photos that I feel best reflect Mike's spirit. These are things that he loves, and they make up this album “Mike's Trailer.” ALL profits from the sales of every photo in this album will go directly to the purchase of materials needed for the renovation. This is an on-going project, and I will continue to add photos until renovations are complete. If you enjoy any of the photos, purchase one (or more) for your home, and let's help Mike, Bobo, and Josie May get into theirs.
