Almost a month late, a thin version of the winter blanket has come to the landscape. Shifting landscapes meet changing climates that days later gave me the opportunity to be outside in a strange December balm.
Saint Paul Almanac is celebrating its newest publishing initiative, Impressions. Impressions provides yet another outlet for Saint Paul to tell its story in its own authentic voice where writers’ work will be posted on broadsides in the trains and buses of our city.
Quotes from Saint Paulites

—Harry Blackmun, late associate justice, U.S. Supreme Court
“Little by little we can help the environment. We can change the world. Step by step. Burdock by burdock.”
—Teenage intern, Saint Paul Conservation Corps
“Recreation and play means growth, progress, and development, all of which tend toward bettering social conditions.”
