After I spoke at the Rust Belt to Artist Belt conference in Detroit, a group from Wayne, Michigan decided to start a blog called “For the Love of Wayne.” The blog “lets local people share their personal stories about why they love Wayne.”
They write: This blog is a project of the Wayne Ripple Effect, a group of volunteer citizens dedicated to revitalization for the City of Wayne and was inspired by the book “For the Love of Cities” by Peter Kageyama.
I love it when ideas turn into action and they allowed me to do a guest post for the blog. Congratulations Wayne, Michigan and keep up the love!

This is awesomely brilliant! A fantastic, creative love note.
It's going to rain no matter what. Why not do something fun with it?
"Rainworks" are messages and art hidden around Seattle that only appear when it rains. Peregrine Church, the creator, makes them "to give people a reason to look forward to rainy days."
If you have ideas or would like to commission rainworks, email Peregrine at firstname.lastname@example.org
See the map of where to find rainworks: http://rain.works/where/
