A reader reports:

“I witnessed a hit and run accident at around 9:25 this morning at the corner of North Capital and Channing (not sure of the cross street, but it was around there). I was a few lanes away from the crash, in no position to stop, but I saw a car speed away from the scene (I’m not clear he was even at fault in the accident) and saw it was a black sporty Chevrolet with a license plate ending in 8085. I tried to follow the car to get the full plate, but he was going faster than I wanted and traffic didn’t allow me to catch up. I called MPD but they didn’t seem especially interested. No pedestrians or bikers were involved, just cars.

Hope no one was badly hurt but perhaps this information is useful to some one.”

It Begins with Pride

I’m sure when this sign was first posted many years ago it took a lot of courage to do so. I’m happy to say the street was clean as a whistle when I passed by last weekend.

From an email:

“This art installation is down the narrow Stronghold alley, overlooking the Glenwood cemetery (Micro Showcase, 21 Evarts St NE). Signs of Regret.”

If we were walking down a street that ends with our lives, what are the road signs we might wish to heed as we travel? –Brian Levy

Bronnie Ware is an Australian nurse who spent several years working in palliative care, caring for patients in the last 12 weeks of their lives. Ware writes of the phenomenal clarity of vision that people gain at the end of their lives, and how we might learn from their wisdom. “When questioned about any regrets they had or anything they would do differently,” she says, “common themes surfaced again and again.” She recorded their dying epiphanies in a book, Five Regrets of the Dying.

Installed at the Micro Showcase, overlooking the Glenwood Cemetery, in September 2016
