Middle C

In piano, middle C is the relative center of the keyboard. This blog is a central place to share my passions: music, photography, travels and cooking. I hope you’ll join me, as I document my journey, on this blog, I call Middle C.

Skyway Art


I walk past this wall art on my skyway walk between office buildings and to my favorite coffee place (when I need an afternoon pick-me-up!)

Pine cones


almost bought pine cones, that were brittle and broken on shelves in the store. But mom had found these, which fell free from the trees.

Alaskan White

Alaskan White

One from the Beer Series of photos, also including Mothership Monday and Summer Friday. I first ‘discovered’ this beer on my 2011 Alaskan vacation, and it’s now one of my favorites. Since my street name is the same as the city where it’s brewed, it’s even more appropriate to keep stocked in the fridge.

Little Giant

Little Giant ladder

I went all over town searching for the Little Giant ladder. Finally, I found it, and it’s the only ladder I’ll ever need.

Pumpkin Seeds

Most people carve pumpkins in October, though my painted pumpkins lasted as decorations for two months. On December 1st, I finally decided I should finish them off before I finished putting up the Christmas tree.

Minneapolis Grain Exchange

No wheat, no barley, no corn nor oats, the only thing being traded today on the floor of the Minneapolis Grain Exchange is creative ideas.

O Christmas Tree

Christmas tree, light painting

I installed a 9-foot tall Christmas tree and had some fun ‘light painting’ with my camera. Way cooler than if I could have planned it.
