About the Book
the wild wine
that sets the wisest man to sing
at the top of his lungs,
laugh like a fool – it drives the
man to dancing... it even
tempts him to blurt out stories
better never told.
Mike creates spaces where people can feel safe, have fun, and reflect on the value of our majestic, fragile world. Physical places Mike has helped construct include playgrounds for inner-city kids and refugee camps for those displaced by war. But he’s also made spaces for arm-chair travelers—books and videos through which they can experience the planet and its people. And he’s created a place for the voices of the disenfranchised about California’s homeless population.
