I enjoyed Amy Rice's light-hearted images so much I wanted you to see more than just the ones I posted yesterday.

Last Sunday while waiting for the ballet, Coppelia, to begin we strolled through several art galleries at the Bloomington Center for the Arts. Twin City Amy Rice's painting exhibit in the Atrium Gallery demonstrated a distinctive style, all pleasant and enjoyable to see. If you are interested in seeing more of Amy's multi-media work, contact her on her Facebook page or through the link I provided above.

These signs were posted on a path that cuts through the main commons area along Grand Avenue in St. Paul at Macalester College.
It doesn't take a mental giant to figure out the goal of the person(s) who posted these signs. We all need to call attention to disparity among student cultures on our nation's college campuses.

Both of us independently chose these two vases as our favourites.
Sometimes you can crowd too many things into one week-end. By Sunday night I was exhausted.: Saturday morning I attended a political town hall meeting held by 4th District Council Woman, Betty McCollum, Sunday morning church service at Unitarian Church followed by scones and creme creche at Latte on Grand Avenue. Then DH and I drove to the Bloomington Center for the Arts to see a performance of Coppelia. Before the ballet began, we browsed the 2017 Invitational Ceramic Exhibition in the Inez Greenberg Gallery, where there were many fine art pieces. We particularly enjoyed the "White Circle" and the "Black Square." I'll show you some paintings later this week that were hanging in the Atrium Gallery. After the ballet, we drove home, grabbed some food and went to hear a poetry and music performance by Naomi Shihab Nye and Sara Thomsen.

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.
