My name is Axel. I am a French Poodle. Some do not capitalize "poodle." That is wrong on many, many levels. So I am just going to say, if you spent your time hating the ignorant, my life would be sour indeed.
And it isn't. I am a happy poodle.
This is not my first report either. I wrote for publication a lively from-the-ground-up travelogue, called "Axel Goes to France." It is about my first visit to my homeland, dragged along by my neglectful servants, Kathleen and George, the human couple who "petified me." You can sample this intimate daily diary in full here. I saw everything. And here. And here. And here. Tell your friends.
L-r, click to enlarge & read the fine print: the mindset; bike racks created through the Steel Yard, for municipalities that want a nice look; the pagoda where tix are sold to events; a mural on a storage container. A decade ago a couple of artists took over a brownfields site in the industrial heartland of Providence, RI, where America's industrial revolution took root. They turned it into a studio-atelier-workshop-place to get dirty-celebration-next generation-entrepreneurial-sparks fly-molten iron pours kind of place that politicians love to visit ... now that the Steel Yard has been around 10 years and remediated the site. It was good that the founding artists came from wealthy families, because government was ZERO help.
