Beautiful decay

Sweaty hair. Bright sun in my eyes all day. A hot shower and AC in the room, never sounded so good! I still have lots of work to do and can hardly keep my eyes open. 

Found my letter of the day!

Had an emotional albeit good quick visit through Detroit. A sad combination of beautiful old homes and decay. As if an apocalyptic event where all the humans are gone and only birds are left singing. Grass growing through asphalt that is not being driven on. Curtains blowing with the breeze, in and out of the broken windows. 

We drove by a house with the top level completely caving in. Then I noticed an old man sitting on the porch, cooling himself. 

Lots of cool graffiti. 

Saw a little portion of blue in a blur out the window and I think that was Lake Erie. We are one hour outside Chicago.

I love old, abandoned buildings but the history surrounding them is so sad.
