Left Behind

There's always something a little eerie about seeing a shoe just laying on the sidewalk, without it's mate, or anyone else around.  St. Clair and Western.

Fall Along the River

Some days just beg for a walk along the Mississippi.  We had a lovely fall here in the Twin Cities.  Thank you Mother Nature.

Hmong Villiage

 Truly enjoyed the field trip I took to this Hmong market.  Clothes, produce, kitchen wares, gifts, medicines, they pretty much have it all.  Frogtown, Northwest of the Capitol building.

My very most favorite show, Cirque du Soleil!!  They set their own venue up, this time in the parking lot of the Mall of America.  LOVE seeing those blue and yellow stripes.

Minneapolis Farmers Market

 Despite having lived here for over a dozen years, I had NEVER been to the Minneapolis Farmers Market.  Mind....blown.
 There will be more visits.  The veggies were magnificent, the choices infinite and the atmosphere colorful.

Serenaded by a stranger.

Outdoor piano.  Grand and Oxford.  When he was done with his lovely, slow and soothing song, he got on his bicycle and ride away.  Most delightful moment of my day.
