    Good stuff Patrick.

    You guys are really selling me on Dallas more and more.

      Thanks Casey! We're only just beginning to scratch the surface. Wait 'til you see what we have planned for July and August!

    Patrick, as always, a beautiful expression of your vision. One of my oldest and dearest friends now lives in Dallas and I encouraged her to sign up just so she could envision the possibilities around her. Thanks for sharing and good luck.

      Thanks John. I'm gonna fight really hard to get the fellowship. I'm hoping the a park like this in Deep Ellum will inspire others to create more public spaces in the neighborhood and fill a lot of the empty lots.

        Telling my Dallas connection to share this with all of her friends....

        • Patrick McDonnell

          Awesome! Yup I'm telling all my Dallas friends today. Sending it out to my national/international friends tomorrow. Voting ends the 10th, but I want to get as much momentum on the front end so we don't have to worry about it later.
