Profile Information

Which Portland neighborhood do you call home? Or, are you Moving to Portland?
Hillsdale
About Me:
I'm a native Portlander, I've lived in every neighborhood in town and never can get lost here. I was away for 17 years and lived in NY, LA and DC and I'm happy to be home. I love to read and create and communicate with other people.
What do you love about Portland?
I love the creativeness here, that we try things out for ourselves without reference to the aesthetic preferences of other places. I love that mass commercial culture isn't as pervasive and accepted as it is other places, that there are many people who here reject it so utterly. I love that there are many, many, many individual people here who dance to their own drummer and make interesting and beautiful things. :) I love going out to breakfast, Portland has the best breakfasts in the country. I love that I fit in here and am nothing special, bizarre or un-ordinary here.
My music:
All kinds but right now I especially love Jon Langford:
http://www.jonlangford.de/

and the Ken de Rouchie Band
http://www.kdband.net/

and I've found Jesus. Everyone needs some Jesus -

What's your favorite Portland neighborhood and why?
All of them.

Community Supported Agriculture

This year, my mother and I went in together on buying a share in a Community Supported Agriculture farm.

You buy a portion of the harvest and either go pick up your fruits and veggies or they're delivered to you or somewhere on a (usually) weekly schedule. You ensure your family good, wholesome produce, help a local farm be successful and contribute to the local economy. By choosing organic, you help protect our soil and the future of our food supply.

We chose…

Hello, gaabi, and welcome to the site! I love the creativeness of Portland, too. I just got back from being out of town, and nearly kissed the ground of Portland, I was so happy to be home.
