Striving to be ‘The Best ...’

I’ve long admired the annual “Best of Detroit” issue from afar. Now I get to play behind the scenes...

Memorable Field Trips

Memory is a fickle thing. There are times I can’t remember what I did yesterday. Other times, I’ll experience a total recall of details from a long-ago meal...

Managerial Decisions

Questioning a baseball manager’s decisions is more than a tradition; it’s a birthright.

Bragging Rights

As much as I hate to boast, my neighborhood is better than yours.

Telling Metro Detroit's Stories

We may not have the same backgrounds, nor will we agree on everything. But collectively, our stories create a unique vibe, as we strive to reinvent and rebuild metro Detroit.

Cold Play

On winter walks, with the snow crunching underfoot, and the sun reflecting blue-white on the snow, the cathedral-like stillness inspires reflection.

Child's Play

Children are our gift to the world, our own dress-up dolls with buckle shoes, flouncy dresses, bow ties, combed hair, and miniature athletic shoes.

Keeping Up Appearances

The one outfit we all wear is ever-present: our outer shell of gender, features, skin, and ethnicity/race — with an evolving overcoat of age.

Detroit of late seems to be revisiting its past, as if making up for lost time.

Essential Ingredients

Say all you want about the cult of personality, youth, and self-branding, food and good conversation are what keep them coming back for more.

Come Out to Play

Not so long ago, Detroit had precious few playmates eyeing its spaces. Now, the kids are circling, and as smart parents know, it’s wise to let them have fun — right in our own backyard.

A Thousand Islands

It’s said no man is an island, but all around us are islands of our own creation, mostly as a means to define and reflect our character and perceived worth.

Springing Into Action

As spring unfolds like a bud unfurling to full glory, we become human versions of fledgling plants sprouting from beneath winter layers.
