The light celebration dlectricity was this past weekend. It is a wonderful time wandering through all the lights in Midwtown, Detroit. Here are some of my very favorites from the festival.

This was my favorite of the evening.  It is OMO TRIP by the mieDAsie Group. It was a pile of forgotten stuff, trash, with projections that fit the piece in various ways.  Alive and changing, this piece fascinated me.

The Erudition by Kelly Richardson on the Michigan Science Center walls gave us an eerie landscape to enjoy.

My second favorite, these wonderful lit knitted plastic bag columns were so much fun to walk around.  Called Thank you, Thank you, Thank you by Julie Hinzmann and Shawn Saharko, these plastic bags can hold light and ideas as well as groceries.


Bikes with lights!  We didn’t get to see the bike parade, but there were still plenty of lighted bikes driving around. A truly beautiful evening!

Out East, 2014

We just got back from our trip out east.

John and Lewie

and very good friends.

Then we visited a guy who had this:

green checker cab

a green checker cab from when Coca-Cola used them to promote Surge, their answer to Mountain Dew.  Watch out, Surge is supposedly coming back.


He also had chickens!  We bought a dozen eggs made by these lovely ladies and had a wonderful breakfast the next day.

Tempo having lunch


This is Tempo having lunch off a yellow plastic lid, on her placemat because she is still quite messy.

Yes, Tempo is growing. She has gained a pound. Doesn’t sound like much, but she was ten ounces, so she’s more than doubled her weight! She is also learning to pounce, run, jump, and climb. In fact, Ms. Who-dini can also climb out of her tub, hence the tape around the top edges. She’s a very smart cat. She is very entertaining, and occasionally very scary.
