dear ann arbor family –
see you in the fall
there will be bands & dancing as we reunite eventually.
i really appreciate you
for filling us with coffee and optimism.
“joy weathers any storm: happiness rides the waves.”
a lot, a lot, a lot
the river rose high
up and over
paths washed out
nice to intersect
where the land met the water
with this very happy dad
following his wife and son
making their way
through what was very recently
a grassy playground
on island park
paddling through to the river
“ever think you’d find yourself paddling here?”
“no, but i’m so, so happy that i am!”
“celebrate the success of others. high tide floats all ships.”
-susan elizabeth phillips
a wonderful note during these challenging times, from our local library:
ann arbor district library
Today, you checked out 30,622 items from the AADL.
Last Friday, that number was 5,067.
NOW PLEASE, DON’T BRING ANY OF IT BACK!
NONE OF IT!
Seriously, please keep everything until we ask for it back.
We promise, we’ll let you know when.
More information on our system-wide closure: https://aadl.org/covidclosure
“the only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library.”

first game of the year
and lots of excitement buzzing around town
most everyone embraces it
even the new arrivals on campus
on sorority/frat row
and the car wash
that stays open and works
while also hosting tailgaters
buses, games, food, and mini bar
now that’s team spirit.
“you are either supporting the vision or supporting division”

on the night before
the Barcelona – Napoli soccer match
takes place in the stadium
the streets close to cars
only to people
with food and drinks
and especially music
as martha reeves
belts it out
under the stars
for the happy crowd.
‘i will always dance in the street.’
