Tonight’s Ride of Silence in St. Paul was a solemn and supportive gathering remembering those killed or seriously injured by motor vehicles while biking. Its leaders and participants spread a hopeful, safe message to both drivers and cyclists about the importance of sharing the road.
The Twin Cities is one of the most bike-friendly communities in the world, and with more people commuting on their bikes year-round, it’s especially important to obey traffic laws and treat one another with consideration and respect.
May you all have a safe and happy summer of cycling!

Between the Twin Cities Marathon and my friend’s daughter’s first-birthday party, I took more than 60 photos today. Here’s a favorite, from a dog’s or squirrel’s point of view, a few blocks ahead of the 24-mile mark on Summit Avenue.

I often pass a church on Summit Avenue that has this little side building I’ve never really paid much notice. Until today.

Parents in town. Art with Dad. Art with Mom.
This morning, Dad and I scampered to the Guthrie Theater, celebrating its 50th anniversary today with a huge community celebration. We loaded up on free Target gear (e.g., sunglasses, bags o’ candy) and took a backstage tour where, halfway through, I was informed I wasn’t allowed to take photos. Whoops. Here are a few that made it past security.
This afternoon, Mom and I took the Summit Avenue Garden Stroll, a biannual tour of some of the most beautiful gardens on one of the most picturesque streets in the United States. Predicted rain stayed away and we were able to enjoy all 12 featured gardens before returning home and napping. Colorful highlights follow.
