Oronoco

Stagnant, unchanging hovel

     churches outnumber taverns.

Fractured streets lined with garages,

     failed commerce, emerging promise.

Quaint post-office, bitter master.

     Cucumbers in the summer

     left in a box at the door.

Yellow fire house,

     aging red engines.

Berg’s worn, red, ancient masonry.

     Children leaving with Necco wafers and pop,

     Never soda.

Don’t tell Verdell that S&M is not the best name for a boat shop.

The town of friends, neighbors, quietly proud.

     Clinging to what was, accepting what is coming.

Somehow the town carries on.

     Somehow.

MN State Representative Steve Simon: “How many gays must God create before we accept that He wants them around?”

VERY powerful.  This guy’s a BAMF.

At the Minnesota Rollergirls championship, Rumblebee is jamming for the Garda Belts. I was very excited to see her jam but a mix of dissappointed and ecstatic that she got jumped by a member of the opposing team, the Dagger Dolls!

Alexander Calder’s “Spinner” at the Walker Sculpture Garden in Minneapolis, MN.  The turbine at the center fulcrum spins in the wind with colors in each section.  It is wonderful up close.
Taken with my Blackberry.  Camera isn’t too shabby on that thing.
