loved visiting the grandies
and their friends from the neighborhood
at their very own garage sale for kids.
they made signs
waved to cars
took turns being the dj in the garage
keeping the music going
and offering specials
(like the ‘wear two things on your head and get one free discount’)
every few minutes.
reminds me of me when i was a kid
though I usually ended up spending my profits
buying my friends’ stuff
and they often did the same with mine.
sometimes I even ended up
with more stuff than I had started with.
a pretty fun time for all
and some things are timeless.
I remember going with my mom
to a random garage sale as a kid and thinking
what a cool treasure hunt that the whole world was.
only to transition as an adult to think,
‘what a gross place that really is.’

‘los trompos,’ (spanish for spinning tops)
a giant spinning top art installation,
visits detroit’s beacon park from mexico city
the eight giant, colorful tops, designed by *héctor esrawe and ignacio cadena, are large enough for multiple people to sit or stand inside them, and visitors are welcome to take a spin. they were designed to facilitate play, celebrate culture, and bring people together to interact and connect. Los Trompos is an interactive piece that comes to life when people engage with it. the tops are based on the construction of the actual toy and reflect the work of mexican artisans, as well as mexican culture, art, and architecture.
community comes together to dance in the park
so fun to be here
as all kinds of people stopped by
just to play and connect with each other.
“simply enjoy life and the great pleasures that come with it.”

to watch grandie j
and his team
just at the beginning
of learning skills and strategies
but they all try really hard
accept each other just as they are
and have such a light-hearted team spirit.
