2225.Day Five

Entering Portland on the I-5 can have a wonderfully cinematic feel to it.  At one point the highway is surrounded by variations on green on either side of the highway.  After traveling over a small rise you  enter the view of the get this view of the city and Willamette River. It seems that a […]

2225.Day Four

What to do when in Portland?   It’s about a thousand miles away from home so it’s good to think about this before you hit the road.  How to balance the combo of taking time to be with Portland familia without being too much under foot, seeing the things that make me feel like I’ve […]

2225, Day Three – more sentences

Preparing for the great Pirate Birthday party to take place the next day at the Lucky Lab.  Cupcakes baked.  Pirate gear prepped for the party.

So what to do when one needs to do something different, something that involves other parts of the brain.  Something that helps keep you healthy?  Mentally and physically? No gyms.  I don’t care for gyms. I see […]

Another hat, but still on things political

Yesterday I wrote about a candidate that I’m supporting.  Today I won’t even write the name because I’m wearing a different hat. Under this hat is the part of me that wonders questions that don’t have simple answers.  It is the part of me that wants to learn more about those running for office.  How well […]
