Flint Dreams


The Flint of your dreams can be a strange place. An anonymous reader reveals:
I used to have a recurrent nightmare about having to walk home (Miller & Ballenger area) down Fleming, from Pierson & Fleming. Other variations head me into the setting sun, orange sky trying to pierce the purple & gray clouds as I struggled for each step close to Clio road. I'd wake up shaking from the exertion. Something intense about that area.

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.
