Local Singer/Songwriter Holly Olm Ready for First Steel Bridge Songfest Appearance
- Jun 5, 2013 - 9:00:00 AM
often said that the famous Wizard of Oz story has a lot to say about
life and what’s really important to people as they make their life
journey. All we need to do is look carefully at the dilemma (and
ultimate resolution) faced by the principal characters of the tale. The
Scarecrow seeks a brain, the Tinman seeks a heart, the Cowardly Lion
wishes for more courage, and Dorothy really wants to go home, where all
Holly Olm’s life
journey has been full of challenges, both physical and emotional, but
lately an abundant amount of resolution has enveloped her body and
spirit, and all this goodness is heard in her musical compositions and
felt by anyone listening to her mellow voice and soothing sounds flowing
from her richly-toned guitar.

Berserk loved the
water. Of all the inhabitants of Jacksonport, she was the one most
likely to be seen walking the beach that wistfully wrapped the easterly
border of this gorgeous place with liquid joy. At least most of the
time. Upon rare occasion, the glistening tranquility of Lake Michigan
would stir up with a vengeance and result in pain, suffering, and
sorrow. Shipwrecks. Drownings. But not today. It was bright and sunny
but gusty with the following winds from the finally-departed front that
had drenched the Door Peninsula for almost a week. Berserk reveled in
the weather change, happily removing her stockings and shoes. She loved
to walk barefooted along the point at which the waves broke on the sandy
shore, savoring the scratchy sand slowly squishing between her slender,
Harvest time was back in full swing. The past weekend was especially
trying for area farmers. Some crops had been ruined, but there was hope
for the squash, pumpkins, beets, and tomatoes. Ben, as Bernard liked to
be called, was out with their father on this rescue mission, his leaky
boots sinking in the mud. "Wet socks again, dad burn it," he thought to
himself. The strong autumn wind in his face was refreshing but was
becoming somewhat annoying as the work day progressed. It seemed sharp
and chilly, a sober reminder that the season was soon to change.
Ber's chores on the
farm had been completed. She had fed the horses and chickens and helped
Mama with the laundry. School lessons were sure to be in disarray after
yesterday's sudden demise of the old schoolmaster.

waiting to come inside the back door, slowly wagging his black
half-tail. Rain was pouring down in sheets and making pinging sounds on
the window panes and flat roof of the back side of the Kelly home near
downtown Jacksonport. Joe hurriedly poured hot black coffee from a large

“Well, Millie, I sure
wouldn't be surprised if Father Jameson preaches about that ark and that
Noah person again this morning,” he muttered to himself. “Millie, my
dear, you downstairs yet?" He took a big sip of coffee and looked up,
his eyes catching the date on the wall calendar above the kitchen
counter ... Sunday, October 14, 1917. Kelly shook his head in disgust
with the continued miserable weather that had disrupted harvest

My own “Y
Story” started when I was just two years old. My family had recently
moved to Door County and my mom took me to the Y to join and sign me up
for a toddler gym class. Now, fifteen years later, the Y is a big part
of my life. I have participated in everything from Saturday soccer, to
after school sports, to a homeschool gym class, to swim lessons, to
Pilates, and so much more. As a homeschooled student, the Y has been a
big part of my family’s physical activity as well as a place where we
have met many of our friends.
This year, I am honored to serve
as a youth member on the YMCA board as well as an official Y employee.
My volunteer work as a dance teaching assistant has grown into my job as
a head dance teacher for some of the smallest Y members. I enjoy being a
Y employee and I also enjoy my visits to the Y several times each week
to take classes, to volunteer for a program, or just to exercise.
