Thinking of Detroit.

Had there been no COVID-19 crisis, I would be finalizing plans to attend the International Convention of Alcoholics Anonymous in Detroit next week. Alas, it was canceled, along with just about everything else. Right?  Yes, the new normal is strikingly abnormal.  And so we must do without.  All, of course, in the interests of public safety.  Right? Well, all I know is that I am missing Detroit and hope to travel there this summer.  Detroit is the come-back kid, and having the AA convention pulled out from under their feet was a kick in the teeth.  But that’s just my opinion.  And I believe that we are causing untold harm to small businesses and Main Street by locking down.  Enough already.  Anyway, I feel better, having gotten that off my fingers.  Now enjoy these photos from past trips to the Motor City:

I have had enough virtual tours of DIA. How about opening the doors again?

A ride on the QLine would be just fine.

This is what I am longing to see in Detroit again.

Come on people,let’s get moving again.

    I couldn’t agree more about the damage to the small business in the pandemic. Small towns, small businesses, and life dreams are the true victims of COVID 19. My mom was a friend of Bill W. and I am thankful for her friendship with him.
