Morning Meanderings… Things I Love About My Town



Good morning!  Hope this Tuesday finds you all well.

Yesterday morning as I was walking into work I seen the guy who walks by the front of the building I work in singing each morning.  He is quite into it, ear buds in, voice loud and hands usually air drumming.  He is fascinating to watch.  Usually, I am up in my office on the second floor when he goes by on the sidewalk below but I hear him all the same and rush to open the window each time to watch him and listen.  He makes me smile.

Once, a couple summers ago I was walking out of that same building one evening and there were a group of musicians on the lawn.  They had large instruments like cello’s and wonderful ones like violins and flutes and they were playing the most amazing music.  On a warm summers eve it was about as good as it gets as I watched them, apparently a random gathering of friends who chose a spot to play.  It was as close to Stars Hollow (yes yes… Gilmore Girl reference) as I have been.

Stars Hollow. Fictional town from Gilmore Girls.



and this is Brainerd…


Bike trail!

Paul Bunyan!

Street dances, zombie crawls, arts in the park, St Patrick’s Day parade….. maybe I have a little bit of Stars Hollow right here. 🙂

I have a “take it one step at a time” day.  This morning I work and then I have a funeral to attend.  The husband of a friend was hit by a car while riding his bike last Thursday.  It is a very sad and painful situation.  Later I am resetting the window at the library and staying to host for author Lorna Landvik when she speaks tonight at the library.

  1. What a wonderful post. Especially in times of grief, its so important to appreciate the things in the world around you that give you joy. Thanks for that reminder.

  2. I was all ready to post on how beautiful the pics are that you posted (and they are), but my heart sunk as soon as I read your words about the tragedy. Prayers for all concerned to help you through this.

Hmmmm... what do you think?
