city of love

So Detroit is not exactly Paris, but it does seem more romantic than usual these days.

Maybe it's because Valentine's Day this week, or maybe it's because I'm on my 4th viewing of "Midnight in Paris", but I just seem to be noticing the beauty in the things that surround me.

In our downtown area, sometimes it's really hard to ignore the destruction, wasted space, and dismal environment. However, what makes Detroit so great is that even on the darkest of corners, there are always things to notice and appreciate. Whether it be the colorful graffiti on an overpass, or a building that is undergoing renovation, or a skating rink in the middle of a round-about, our city has some remarkable treasures.

You just have to put on some rose-colored glasses and search for it.
