My heart belongs to the mitten and all the great stuff in it. Here are some guest posts I’ve written for the Pure Michigan blog.
Hack Yes! A look at the awesome Maker Faire Detroit event at The Henry Ford. (Definitely a family favorite event.)
Memories, Model Ts and Magical Holiday Nights takes a look at some fond memories of Holiday Nights in Greenfield Village
Ties from the Titanic to Michigan. The photo above is one of my favorites from the Titanic: An Artifact Exhibition. This woman was so moved by everything in the exhibit, I found myself following her around. At the end, I asked her if she would tell me her impressions of the exhibition for a video. She did, and the two of us – along with everyone in ear-shot – stood teary eyes. Before I could gather my senses and get her contact info, she was gone. I produced this very lo-tech video which has been pretty popular on the museum’s site. Then in July, at Maker Faire Detroit, I literally bumped right into her. I squealed, “Hey! You’re Rita!” And reminded her of our encounter. I told her about the video (which she had not seen) – and we stood in a maker tent and watched it on my iPod – and got choked up again. It was great! We hugged and laughed and went on our merry way.
