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

—Bryan Thao Worra, Laotian-American poet
“Beware of over-confidence; especially in matters of structure.”
—Cass Gilbert, architect
“I don’t tell the popular narratives, the commercial narratives, that one is supposed to tell as an African American writer, and there is a price to be paid for that.”
—David Haynes, former Saint Paul writer and teacher
