Kathleen and Paul are owners and live on site. So you'll get quick response to your needs and access to your washer/dryer in the basement.

Your apartment is only 100 feet from Grand Avenue and only 100 more to beautiful Lake Merritt where the winter birds are arriving. And runners abound.

Your Saturday Farmer's Market is closeby under/around I-580. Trader Joe's is just a few more feet. Whole Foods Market is walkable from your apartment. Sprouts Farmers Market is on Broadway and Safeway is closeby on Grand Ave.

Then there's the classic Grand Lake Theater. You'll find many good restaurants on Grand and Lakeshore. Walking Grand Ave and Lakeshore at night always reminds me of the Left Bank of Paris.

This area truly is a gem and Kathleen and I are glad and happy to live here. You will be too.

June 9 - Sebastian Graduates!

The main reason for our visit to Minneapolis this year was to be at Seby's graduation. It took place at school, and the auditorium was packed with parents, siblings and relatives.

Paul and I arrived at the school early, but still had to be satisfied with seats in the third row. We were up close, but still could not take pictures of some of the participants. For example, the school orchestra used their drummers to produce a knock-out piece that was played as the graduates entered the room. I wish we might have recorded the music they created!

Some years ago, a parent from the school wrote a poem to his child, and named it, "Child of Mine" -- it was not the famous "Child of Mine" by Edgar Guest. But the other parents loved the poem and it seems it's become something the faculty sings to the graduates each graduation. The entire faculty stood together and faced the graduates, then sang the song to them. It was a special moment.

During the service, each graduate was called to the front, and accompanied by one, two or three friends from the next graduating class, stood before everyone as the younger students faced the graduate and told that graduate what his/her contributions have been.

Each of the presenters spoke of Seb's caring about other students, of his great sense of humor, of his making others feel important, and other vingutes on how Seb impressed each of these three friends. It was quite a lovely thing to see!

When the graduation service was over, parents and guests were invited to have some nice refreshments.

After the refreshments, the graduates gathered outside where they were taken to a nearby restaurant - all of the graduates, guests of the teachers!

We were happy to be invited to the ceremony, and to share this special day with Seb.

Congratulations, Sebastian A. Winchester!

4/25 - INTEGRITY MEANS AVOIDING any communication that is deceptive, full of guile, or beneath the dignity of people. "A lie is any communication with intent to deceive." Whether we communicate with words or behavior, if we have integrity, our intent cannot be to deceive. - from 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey
