Pope Art

Last night, I performed at this art gallery in Terrace, MN, about thirty miles south of Alexandria in a beautiful lake region of Pope County.

The inside features a grand piano on the former altar. About twenty-five people attended, a typical group. They were a very interesting, literate bunch. We had no trouble finding common ground, both with music and monologue.

Naturally, I was poking fun at the Norwegian accents and doing imitations. Only afterwards did I find out that there were four or five people from Norway in the audience. Luckily, they enjoyed it all. They even bought copies of my books! The one gentleman told me he does the same thing I do around little venues in Norway--reading, giving monologues, and the sort. We had a great chat.
