Work today then to my moms for dinner and to see my brother Bill who will be there. Really looking forward to that don't get to see him too often..
A busy day ahead a meeting and then a few tutoring appointments...
Here is some inspiration from my day yesterday!
Monday I was off so we drove downtown Detroit and while the nation hates our city and it is falling to ruin...it is so unfortunate because I love this city and its thick rich history. We made an appointment with Old St. Mary's church in Greek-town for taking some photos. The place was built in 1845 and it is just amazing been serving in the Metro Detroit area for over 177 years...wow right? The stained glass in this church is breathtaking and its a very peaceful place. So before I head out today wanted to share the downtown and church photos with you all...hope you enjoy!
|You know it|
|Yes..I traced around every flag...probably missed a few and made many mistakes this was a pain really. lol|
|I love fire escapes..probably cause I never had to use one lol|
|GM headquarters formerly known as the Renaissance Center|
|I often wonder what is behind those windows|
|Says it all...what a waste of what was once a beautiful city...|
|one of my favorite spots...love the variation of architecture in the city...|
And here is a link to the DIA Detroit Institute of Arts which I believe with its new renovations is currently the WORLDS 3rd largest art museum...in itself...a reason to travel to Detroit...and I'm really not kidding we go there possibly 5-9 times a year...thinking about going this coming weekend!
There is far more to this city that petty crimes and poverty. art is on the rise in this city. artists are taking over abandoned buildings and turning them into studios and shops for local artist to sell their goods..here is an interesting video there are three parts to this video...its worthy!
If you are an artist and like documentaries you will appreciate these videos...
a lot of great history information about Detroit here too.
When you have very little....you learn to find beauty in everything.
