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.
and this is Brainerd…
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.
