One road.

One stop.

Five minutes.


Not the Rose Parade

July 26, 2014 § Leave a comment

I haven’t been to the annual Art Car Parade since it was a block long in a marginal section of Uptown. Now in its 20th year, it has moved to a ritzier address — the Lyndale Park Rose Garden adjacent to Lake Harriet.

It was certainly an odd scene. Occupying the street next to the sophisticated rose garden were cars of every size, shape, model, and make festooned in a variety of materials, colors, patterns, and messages. So were the owners. Everyone appeared to enjoy the ridiculousness and frivolity of it all as they waited for the parade to begin.

I had to leave before the parade got underway, but I tried to capture the essence of the event and its surroundings as I shifted between the art car lineup and the gardens.

Doggie daycare and eight hours of socializing for him.

Writing projects, errands, and an uncomfortable four-mile run in humid 90+ degree temps for me.

The proper way to end our crazy day was to walk through a park. And try to get a decent picture of Eddie.

My mom grows beautiful flowers, and her peonies are among the loveliest of her blooms. A bouquet of pink and white blossoms from her garden is nearing the end, but it’s still stunning.

What I’m reading this week, including a series on World War I from The New York Times. I won’t get to all of the new pieces and archived articles, but it’s definitely worth a look if you are as fascinated by that era and the senselessness of the war as I am:
