And somehow today, after much passage of time, it's still going... Hooray!
You'd think sidewalks would be an incredibly boring topic. But for some reason, there's no shortage of content.
I have a long list of things I want to write about, including many future Sidewalks of the Week (North Saint Paul, the mysterious "forgotten neighborhood" that I keep failing to remember, fabulous downtown Shakopee, places deep on the East Side, Lilydale, St. Louis Park, and many more), more sidewalk tours, and a few other surprise features I've been meaning to finish.
Other impending topics include:
- Psychoanalysis of Small White Stoplight Men
- How to Re-use Old Golf Courses
- something highly exciting about Lake Calhoun
- Why Tailgating Sucks
- Food Trucks vs. Skyways II: the Rematch of the Century
- Sidewalk Interviews with outsider artists, street musicians, and others
- the Half-Ass-O-Meter
- the Accuracy of Kitsch Maps
- the Intersection of Zen and Walking
- and of course, more Highland Villager for your perusal

Q: What is an artisanal handmade sidewalk narrative postcard?
A: Each one is unique. Expect an artistically modified postcard of ambiguous incipience containing a true-life sidewalk tale of how I have spent your generous monetary gesture.
What's more, I will have this quasi-artistic missive hand-delivered to the address of your choosing via our nation's foremost sidewalk delivery service, the United States Postal Service.
