A view from an artist’s walk

I had attempted to go on an artist’s walk at Como, took the wrong highway, got stuck in traffic and when I pulled over I wound up at the University of Saint Paul campus. While I used to spend quite a bit of time at Lori’s coffee shop across the street, the quiet of the campus used to bother me and the friend I visited there was often prone to unpleasantness. However, this particular day, that friend gone from my life, I discovered that the beauty of the University of Minnesota Saint Paul campus is its quiet, along with its intriguing buildings. What do you think these are guarding, after all, especially when less than 100 yards away are the campus stables?
