What do you love about Portland?
Greenery!!! Lots of big trees, well-maintained parks, and glorious greenery everywhere - just like an urban forest!!! The public transit system is excellent, making it easy to live without a car year-round. Living without a car saves me a lot of money!!! Mild weather year-round, with lots of overcast, cool, misty days. The general grayness is something a lot of people dislike about Portland, but for people like me who don't like the heat and find such weather energizing and enlivening, it’s a big plus.
My music:
Karnatic and Hindustani
What's your favorite Portland neighborhood and why?

Favorite quote:
“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, that is way great spiritual giants are produced.”

I love rain (Mazha).... especially the magical Monsoon rain from God's Own Country, Kerala (where I grew up in a rural village). .it always pour sweet memories and its always remind me my sweet days... and always with me in my good and bad times...its depth and beauty is unexplainable in words compared to the monochromatic rain in Portland.

Hi Karma,
Great reading. Are they original from you? Or are they phrases that mean something to you?
