The Art of Rain

An evening thunderstorm in Uptown – Minneapolis, Minnesota. Another reason why I live here.

In memory of Prince’s passing, “Duck Duck Gray Duck” shall be referred to as “Duck Duck Purple Duck” until further notice. Minnesota celebrates all forms of “Duck Duck” because we’re cool like that.

Dearly beloved
We are gathered here today
To get through this thing called life
Electric word life
It means forever and that’s a mighty long time
But I’m here to tell you
There’s something else
The after world
A world of never ending happiness
You can always see the sun, day or night
– Prince

A Minnesota legend – These lyrics were my introduction to an imaginative master. His music touched so many moments in my life. My heart is a bit heavy. Thank you for your gift.

Farewell Old Friend

A Minneapolis institution  played its final request this past weekend. Since 1950, Nye’s Polonaise was one of those beloved establishments that shaped the character of Minneapolis. I spent many a night at Nye’s with friends as we discussed the important issues of the day over good food, drinks and song.

Farewell old friend – Legends never die.
