Walking home from downtown Ann Arbor last month, I watched an elderly couple clutching one another, walking carefully and diligently to avoid falling on the slippery sidewalks. The man used his cane for as much support as possible, and the woman held onto his arm for more balance. I was only 20 feet behind them when suddenly, I was swept off my feet and landed on the asphalt of S. 4th Street. I hoped that the couple did not also experience a similar fate, falling from the same black ice.

Huron River

What makes the Huron River special is not just the array of activities that it produces, but rather the magic of the river itself.

Tomboy has its own society-influenced definition. And it’s bullshit.

Magdalen College campus, Oxford est. 1458

With its centuries-old structures, dreaming spires and ivy vines, Oxford’s decorum and spacial designs defy the concepts of living in the present moment.

“Zipperhead” Store, South Street

I’m haunted by giant black ants.

I was a little girl, gleaming out the window of the car, and my parents were driving down South Street in Philly. I was desensitized to the crowds, the zappy signs and the smell of fried food. My eyes were locked on three-dimensional, larger-than-life black ants crawling over the face of an old punk store “Zipperhead.”

Ashley's

Squeezed between a liquor store and a record shop, and shoved underneath a yoga studio, is Ashley’s: A hole-in-the-wall bar on State Street and a staple to the University’s campus. Ashley’s cozy cabin vibes –– an array of empty bottles atop the wooden rafters and engravings of names and doodles carved into the tables –– creates the perfect atmosphere to grab a beer, a bourbon or buffalo wings with friends. Just a few steps from the diag, Ashley’s is the tiny gem that should be celebrated for its welcoming energy and diverse selection.

It’s an active, mindful and incredibly difficult challenge to continuously tame your subconscious, but it’s surely not impossible.
