T Is for Twin Cities by Nancy Carlson
For the L is for Lake picture - is there actually a beach where you can see the skyline that close? I wanted to get a "real life" picture of my girls while we're in the Twin Cities on sabbatical but no luck yet.

“Unless you were high up in a building or happened to glimpse it at the end of one of the big avenues going east-west, all you knew of the sunset was a darkening in the air.

“Reasoning with a two-year-old is about as productive as changing seats on the Titanic.”
Robert Scotellaro

“There is no singular meaning of wife. That is the point. That is its meaning. To see the wife fully through a multi-faceted lens is one of the central challenges facing society in the twenty-first century.

These are essential if we are to create necessary new narratives, new ways of living as women and men together.”
Anne Kingston, The Meaning of Wife: A Provocative Look at Women and Marriage in the Twenty-first Century

“Boy poison - a boy's kisses were like a poison, which infected you and after you were exposed you craved more, like an addict.”
Susan Minot, Rapture

“Doing nothing is opting for the sweetness of stillness...Instead of fighting with that which you cannot control, you might as well just see it through...”
