fairy kitty

one of today's grateful-for's

(originally a comment in elisem's journal)

My animal shelter volunteer job. There's no better treatment for sadness than to go sit in the kennel of small and/or scared dogs, or have an adoring pit bull standing with her paws on my chest and smiling at me (with a mouth approximately the size of a great white shark's).

The Daily Kos blog has a great article about Detroit today. I grew up in one of the nearby white-bread suburbs. Insofar as Detroit culture reached to where I was (which it partially did because I had several friends who lived in the city proper), the author creates a really accurate portrait of the city and its people.

I don't think very much about Detroit or consciously miss it, except when I read stuff like this.
