Marina mugged by Sophie after a final night at Mountain Town, headed back to Italia and other European lands after graduation a few weeks ago. It was a pleasure meeting you and I'll miss the great street conversations we had on campus that pulled me out of my routine. They got me thinking positive and differently about the bigger picture rather then the daily grind at hand.
Be well my friend.

Went on a little adventure to the old Packard Automotive Plant on Grand Boulevard in the 'D' . It was the first structurally reinforced concrete factory in the world built by Albert Kahn in 1907. The Packard was the Luxury car of the 1930's.
Packard was all but gone after 1958 as one industrial automotive company ate another in the 50's. I thought I could hear the ghosts of the industrial age as we wondered through out one of the 74 buildings that are or once were on the site.

Thought this was funny. Had the opportunity to make some pictures at a decoration session for a local high school. It was pretty elaborate. They even decorated the bathrooms.
"I'm so excited to have my hair professionally done," Alicia Biggs, 16, of Midland, left, said while discussing prom decorations for the Audry Hepburn themed women's restroom with Kayla Striker, 16, of Midland at the Northwood University Hach Student Center in Midland Friday. 1,250 students from both Midland and Dow High School are expected to attend the Hollywood/New York City themed prom made possible with donations from local businesses Saturday.
