I wish Magnolias were year round. I is so sad to see their petals fly off the stem through the air and then stepped on or left to rot. Such beauty nature holds, it is no wonder it only lasts for a couple weeks out of the year.

Who doesn't love a good FERRARI sighting?

I had a meeting at 4731 gallery last week about the launch party for Arson Capital and Heavenly Dogs which are sister companies looking to make some BIG moves in the next couple of months.

I think this roll of film was exposed to some light but it made some cool photos. This is a good friend of mine Ali working on her stone in the print studio!

My best friend from elementary school blew into Ann Arbor wednesday night. It has been about 2 years since I have seen her last. It is always amazing to catch up with her because we talk like no time has passed.

Not all things that are dark or seem bad are as bad as they are perceived. I have found that if you take a closer look at the dark or socially considered 'bad' things that the finer details are not observed. Don't make blind or surface deep assumptions because you are wrong most of the time.

Spring is in the air but the saying is, April showers bring May flowers. I believe it!

Today is my 100th photograph from this year! It is amazing how time flies! Not only is is my 100ths photo but it was my last day working with the kids at Head Start in Detroit, Michigan. I was very sad to be leaving and I think the kids knew it was my last time saying goodbye to them. Soon I will be back and who knows when I might have a few of my own! 
It is funny how some kids really have an impact on you. There were several kids in this classroom that simply inspired me to push forward with my schooling and persue my passion for kids. It is always hard to say goodbye to any one but it is something we have to do all the time. People are in and out of our lives constantly but it is hard for me to understand myself as one of those people. A person in and out of other peoples lives. The thought is a little painful. I like to think that I don't actually leave but I just can't be as close or available.
When we change schedules or go in different directions the people we are closes…

Today I walked on clouds through an inverted sky after a rain storm in may.

If I ever feel bad about things going on around me I normally look to the sky for help and inspiration.

I spent some time with a good friend of mine at this new pizza place in town. I don't want to let the secret out but this place has the BEST sandwiches ever. I love food and I can't wait to go back!

The after math of LIFE IN COLOR DANCE PARTY! This was a totaly blast. I went with several of my friends and I can't wait to go again next year. Maybe I will throw my own paint party some time.

Some times it is the fine details, the ones you have to look at real close that matter the most or hold the most meaning.

I thought about hopping on as the cars floated slowly by.
They seemed so majestic and full of potential.
The roar of steel boxes roaming the country
I imagine the wind on my face
Watching the landscape moving around me

So I am back here again.
Pondering life and death.
How temporary we all are.
This post goes out
to a friend, artist, and peer
that passed this week.

When a soul leaves this precious world
you can hear its hollow cry.
I knew it
I felt it today
but not until recently
understood why.

This is what I know
Death is a part of life
but when it comes so early
that is what gives me a scare
like why did it have to be you
so my heart begins to tear.
what spills out
are a bunch of desperate thoughts

tell me your ideas
did not die with you
tell me all your thoughts
Did not die with you
tell me all your dreams
did not die with you
tell it all.
I want to know

I would search through the pages
to manifest them just like you wanted.
We are nothing but our ideas
So I will bring you back to us that way.

I could feel you slip away
because a part of me was gone.
Or was it more present?
a part of you is alive
in all of the people you touched
in every piece you made.

Ji,

It was truly an honor to know and work…

So I got really bored and did a binge lookbook shoot in my bedroom. Here is one look I wore of a dress I got from my great grandmother who recently passed away.

So in my Pubic Art and Urban Intervention class we wrote a mock proposal for a piece of temporary or permanent piece of art in the Ann Arbor area then we presented our ideas on power points to the arts council at city hall. 
This is my really close friend Stevon who has experience with public art and does a phenomenal amount of community work in all of his free time. Stevon and I met through Semester in Detroit and since then we have always been up to something. If you haven't met him on campus you are bound to find him doing a performance piece or helping kids express themselves in anyway they need. Be on the look out for him because he is changing the world one child at a time.

I got a little impulsive and just shaved all my hair off. What do we think?

I have always wanted to do it!
