52 Portraits 25: Kayj Michelle Garrison


“I feel like we should just abolish that question.” - Kayj, commenting on how she feels about people asking, “What are you doing these days?” 

Kayj is the co-creator of First Fridays Ypsilanti, a thriving, self-guided monthly art and culture walk hosted at multiple venues throughout the downtown areas of Ypsilanti. She is a lover of travel and a spiritual seeker, and Kayj shares in this podcast how the two seemed to go hand in hand on her recent trips to Zambia and India. I caught up with her recently during a time of transition as she steps down from her role as president of FFY. If you are feeling like you’re “in between” things in your life, or you find yourself questioning how you spend your time, this conversation has something for you.
