ups and downs.

Standard

 

you know that feeling

when you fall down

on the trampoline

and keep trying to get up

but everyone keeps jumping

and you keep bouncing

and then all of you

start belly-laughing

and keep belly-laughing

and cannot stop?

 

“life has its ups and downs, but you can only look forward.”

rejoice.

Standard

headed off on a family fun river raft float trip 

not real relaxing as expected

but lots of adventures/misadventures instead

so many laughs and we all survived

who could ask for anything more?

“rejoice as summer should…chase away sorrows by living.”

baseball is drama.

Standard

 

great fun

at a game of

the traverse city pit spitters vs. the wisconsin woodchucks.

nice field

light attendance

good seats

cheap food and drinks

dinos, mascot, lively fans, crazy promos,

singing, dancing, kids on the grass,

nice weather, music, good company

all that

and a baseball game too

a very pleasant way to experience an evening.

art is community.

Standard

‘los trompos,’ (spanish for spinning tops)

a giant spinning top art installation,

visits detroit’s beacon park from mexico city

'Los Trompos.' - ABEL KLAINBAUM

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.”
