GM&O southbound “Limited” departs for St. Louis, approaching Roosevelt Rd., behind an E7, “E8A” (101-100A.) A CB&Q switcher from their coach yard (on the other side of Roosevelt Road behind me) rearranges some cars by the Railway Express Agency.

In August 2012, at the age of 28, I was reconnected with the biological family I never knew. At that time, I learned that my father, also named Michael, did not die in a car accident as I had always been told. Rather, I came to find out that he took his own life on my mother’s 21st Birthday, just shortly before I turned a year old. He did not leave a note. Almost 30 years later, in my most personal and emotional creation to date, I wrote that note for my father. Written through our collective heart, eyes, and hand, that piece of our soul is “Michael’s Note.”


“Michael’s Note” was followed by half a decade of critical introspection, reflection, and expression in the form of a visual history paradoxically representing a singular moment, time, and experience as well as momentum, time, and experience in their totality. Completed in the Spring at the age of 33 and given life in conjunction with the Summer Solstice, “Reign Upon Sonrise” is a five year meditative reflection of a simple complexity, or “simplexity.” A 49 canvas polyptych with a myriad of possibilities and experiences, this meditation is a personal and elemental narrative veiled under the umbrella of a fractalized spectrum of sub-narratives called “Reigndrops.” Peering into the human soul with no definitive beginning or end, may you enjoy your journey across the “Reignbough” and discover the enlightenment you seek in the “Reign Upon Sonrise.”


Dedicated to the father I never had the honor and privilege to know-

Amtrak Train No. 15, the Texas Chief, is shown backing into Union Station prior to it 3:00 PM departure. FM H12-44 No. 637 is handling the back-up from the AT&SF 22nd Street coach Yard. No. 637 would be traded to GE and scrapped in 1974. The road power is a quartet of F7s in A-B-B-B configuration, led by F7A No. 315, one of 14 F-units in the yellow bonnet paint scheme. The former PRR Western Freight House is in the background of this photo taken from the Roosevelt Rd. bridge on May 20, 1973.
