on a downtown detroit day

discovering

beautiful little gems 

in so many

unexpected places

buoying our hopes

for a city

that has not given up

and is beginning

to thrive once again

in spite of

challenges

that once seemed

insurmountable.

“there is no power for change greater

than a community discovering what it cares about.”
