Long shadows stretch across the pavement. My legs appear to go on forever and I look model-like-tall. Thanks to the angle of the sun, my image is being granted temporary height. The illusion is fun to look at, but I know the real way to “stretch” myself is from the inside out.
#1 – Stretch of Imagination
Do you believe in fairies? Well, if you ask folks in Ann Arbor, Michigan, some of them might just point out tiny front doors of fairy homes to prove they exist. While remodeling his home, author Jonathan B. Wright secretly installed fairy doors, much to the delight of his daughters. Years later, fairy doors popped up in public areas such as restaurants, shops, offices, and a library. Each tiny door tends to mimic the style of the host building or is an exact replica. Some doors even allow glimpses into interior spaces. What started out as a surprise for Mr. Wright’s daughters has become a public art installation.
