Ellen Gibbon

Ellen Gibbon, 43, works for a community music school in Chicago. In August, she traveled with two friends to North Manitou Island in Lake Michigan where "we experienced nature in all its glory — an endless starry sky, punishing thunderstorms, a gazillion black flies and a red moon rising." These are the sounds of her life at this moment.
