One of the most cogent, well-prepared and concise question was posed by Alexi, a high school student from Roseville. If this student is an example of the future generation we have a positive outlook ahead of us. Unlike some of the more verbose adults, Alexi's comments and question indicated a well-informed and thoughtful student who "loves school!" The entire meeting between McCollum and the audience was spirited and lively. In addition to all the information she presented, our 4th district congresswoman exhorted activity and involvement from citizens and businesses. I'm ready!!

I have a lovely friend who has been making spectacular jewellery as a hobby for many years. I, fortunately, have been the recipient of several gifts from her. Even when I did not deserve them!
I particularly like this one and always get great compliments when I wear the necklace.

Another of my patient and stalwart Starbuck friends, who agreed that I could add his image here to represent a man reading, despite the fact that I didn't initially ask his permission. But, that's what friends are for!! Does a Kindle qualify for a photo in my series?

When a cultural activity includes food, it increases the enjoyment of the experience! After passing the Danish American Cultural Institute many, many times, I decided to visit it. DH and I went to their monthly Sunday breakfast and enjoyed ourselves immensely. I was unfamilar with their special and delectable Æbleskive and fell in love with it immediately. The chefs showed me the steps in their preparation, which made me want to come back for more. Since I just recently learned from my DNA that my background includes a huge percentage of Scandinavia (who knew!!--I guess those marauding Vikings were everywhere!!) I decided to get in touch with it. Of course, I'll return in April for another delectable meal served by cheerful volunteers and social patrons with whom I enjoyed talking.

These are not the publicity photos usually associated with the facade of the world-renowned Guthrie Theatre. DH and I saw a matinee performance of King Lear last Saturday when I took these photos. Two of those photos show parts of the theatre as seen from the streets, where the city wisely has installed 8-hour parking meters. The other is a long projection that extends from the fourth floor of the rear of the building where patrons can see the Mississippi River, either inside or outside. Tomorrow I will show you some of those views.

Yesterday I posted photos of two women reading. Today I'd like to introduce you to Bernie, my Starbuck friend, who arrives every morning like clockwork to get his daily copy of the New York Times to enjoy with his coffee. I've had some interesting political discussions with him over the years, and I consider him one of my many friends whom I have met in this cafe. Bernie enjoyed the photos and thought he looked just a wee bit older than he feels. Don't we all!!

Instead of going to early morning church on the first Sunday after Central Daylight time begins (losing one hour), I decided to mine my archives and show you this beautiful church entrance. For those of you who live in this geographical area or one similar. motivation to take one's camera for a photo shoot is rather low because it is still very cold, gray, dark and dank. A prayer to the Gods: please encourage spring to arrive early!!

Each month an artist, sometimes two or more, hang original art of their own in the Center Room at Unity Church. I am always impressed with the talent; it may be photographs, paintings, multi-media or textile arts. During the month of March two textile artists displayed their work. Since I admire this kind of art, I am posting here a small wall hanging that caught my eye.

On February 3, 2017, I attended the opening reception for the paintings of Joy Liberman in the Drake Gallery at St. Paul Academy and Summit School. Joy s a very gifted artist, and I will show you the amazing variety of her work in this exhibition in the coming days. It is hard to chose a favourite but this large painting will take us on a visual path of the artwork.

This lamppost across from our house is always a beacon just before "first light."
This photo is particularly apt today since it has snowed and covered the ground with a winter wonderland appearance after several weeks of unseasonably warm weather.
Today is the beginning of Lent--Ash Wednesday
