It's true...everything is going to be alright


The Museum of Contemporary Art shines over Woodward Ave. in Detroit


This week my friend Beth ran smack into a bit of an existential brick wall. She's a good person, and a smart one too so I know she'll wrap her pretty literature soaked head around the philosophical conundrum but it put me in mind of one of my favorite smile inducing places on the planet. If I'm stuck in the middle of some uncertainty I always feel better when I see the Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit. It's along a stretch of Woodward Ave. that serves as a sort of soundstage for the burnt out version of the city a mere one or two blocks out of sight of a main corridor like Woodward. The buildings illuminated, "everything is going to be alright," facade makes me feel good...it just does. Especially considering the message that it delivers in a city so desperate for the kind of hope that it so boldly promises. Keep your head up Beth. The world's a better place because you so often do.

Hahaha! Julia has been walking around singing "Three Little Birds" for the last couple months. Nice to know it's all just part of the zeitgeist.

Thanks, buddy! Today was a better day. It was enlightening, energizing and collaborative. All the reasons I love teaching. My head is twisted on right again...for now! :)

Everything will be alright in the end. If it's not alright, it's not the end.
