detroit is my city. i love everything about it…from its amazing history to its down + dirty job as a phoenix rising from the ashes. i have so many brilliant memories of detroit + see its inspiration in my design ideas + loves today. my love affair with design + music started there + led me so many new places, it’s beyond magical. detroit is like an old, dear friend to me. sure, it’s a tough town but i like it that way + i find its personality can be quite similar to my own at times. if i had to choose a personality to mimic a city i’ve lived + loved than i’ll take detroit any day!
there’s still so much work that needs to be done to bring the city close to its previous glory but i have hope it will get there. i found myself reminiscing about detroit today via some amazing projects.
so i guess this is my fourth of july post. the good old ‘american dream’ which rose and failed right here in the d.
