After a week of summer here in North Dakotaland, we’ve settled back into a lazy spring with temperatures wandering through the 60s and visiting the upper 30s at night. With plenty of sunshine and a gentle breeze rather than a howling wind, I’m looking forward to the weekend!
Bonnie Larson Staiger’s poem “Still” got me thinking about the blustery North Dakota winds in the summer. Do check it out over at the North Dakota Quarterly page.
With the world cautiously awaking from its COVID-induced slumber, there’s Cup racing on Sunday (at Bristol no less!) and plenty of whispers from the NBA, boxing, and other motorsports that a return is immanent. In fact, the Aussie’s announced their summer cricket schedule this week and it sounds like the West Indies are headed to the UK soon in preparation for their tour.
So there’s a lot to look forward in the next couple of months despite all the uncertainty, in the meantime, here are some quick hits and varia:
