floating back on top in argo park
That’s what all the people say
You’re riding high in April, shot down in May
But I know I’m gonna change that tune
When I’m back on top, back on top in June
-Frank Sinatra “That’s Life”
“on water and light she runs.”

early evening in the park on the river in spring
crew teams have returned with the birds.
“all were merged into one smoothly working machine;
they were, in fact, a poem of motion, a symphony of swinging blades.”

came across this open door
when walking in the park

“i try not to go the obvious route all the time,
but sometimes the most obvious is actually the best.”

on a rainy walk
covered with shining confetti
only thing I know
is that it was
‘’I’m all about possibilities and about surprises and the life force.”
a family afternoon spent
practicing karate skills, self defense, getting a good workout
socially distant, outside, under a very hot sun
at beacon park, in detroit
lots of sweat, lots of water, lots of fun
“karate is a form of martial arts in which people who have had years and years of training can,
using only their hands and feet, make some of the worst movies in the history of the world.”
shoes left behind
no need for these when you find the river.
“let your shoes take you to where your happiness grows.”
