wow, that's a big mouse pad.
so, is this Carriagetown?
Must be the weekend to be in Flint.... Heading for a morning out with my son, some Brown Sugar Cafe coffee and a trip to the new playscape in Memorial Park.I did not, however, sleep on a giant mousepad...
Those with hopes for a Flint revival should remember that the Carriagetown development, at least initially, was driven by community activists and neighborhood energy, not the politicians, the real estate pimps and the bankers ... and certainly not by the Mott Foundation, the source of the problem in Flint for decades.It's a cautionary tale of what people can accomplish when they believe in an ideal and keep it away as long as they can from those who still harbor the old plantation mentality.
only in gordo-land would an unfurnished apt. come with a persian rug. good luck! bk
Nice floor, beautiful rug, cosy sleeping bag - works for me! Just not the part about computer work while sitting/lying on the floor - I wouldn't be able to move much after that...
So how long are you home for? I hope you can get together with your loyal Flint readers. :)
Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
