WMCAT took a group of 31 students up to Northern Michigan University in Marquette, MI for an overnight trip.  There were a couple bumps along the way but overall it was a great experience and great exposure for both the staff and students.

April 2

My friend Georgia and I decided to take advantage of the rather gloomy day and head out on a photo walk downtown Grand Rapids.  There are a lot of abandoned buildings/factories which are always a blast to take photos of.

We also "discovered" the antique hotspot downtown.  I'm not usually one that goes to antique shops to buy something but if I have my camera the shops transform into a place I could spend hours in. If antiques could talk...

So I realize that my monthly theme idea isn't working as well as I had hoped.  There is no excuse.  2011 is going by too fast already and I can't seem to keep up with it.  There are too many things I want to work on and photography seems to be the area that is receiving the short end of the stick.  Thankfully though I have been able to show a couple of my travel photos at WMCAT along with other faculty.

Tonight was the Kentwood Art Show at WMCAT.  While that show was wrapping up, Leanne and I headed over the the GRAM to see other artwork from different Grand Rapidian students ranging in age and grade from K-12.  Seeing this gallery full of art and creativity lifts my spirits.  We need to encourage youth to continue to develop these talents and gifts.

Art work by a 6th grader.

Another oops day.  Really..I have to stop this....

March 20

Tonight was a bittersweet night. It was the final concert for the Bach Festival in Grand Rapids, and the choir I participated in, The Bach Chorale, performed selections of Telemann, Cimarosa, and of course, Bach.  It was great singing in a choir saturated with talented musicians.  Unfortunately the short season came and went all too quickly, but hopefully I will be blessed again sometime soon to be a part of another talented choir.

I have also been training for the Grand Rapids Triathlon.  My training plan is staring at me every morning and night to remind me how much work I still have to do...
