flying, fans, and forts.

Standard

on a 

 quick stop

to say hi

to the grandies and friends

 I was lucky enough to enjoy

their indoor flying and blow-up forts created with fans.

life is good at the end of summer. 

“the end-of-summer winds make people restless.”

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.”

grand symphony.

Standard

sonic lunch

a free concert series

thanks to a collaboration between

a local radio station and a local bank

always brings the city together

for a shared experience

the light, the music, the bubbles, the dancing, the company

the break from work, stress, life, worries, routines

 at least for a little while

once each summer week

shaed performs for a welcoming crowd

 

“we are each but a quarter note in a grand symphony.”

liberty plaza, ann arbor, mi, usa – august 2019

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.

 

“baseball is drama with an endless run and an ever-changing cast.”
