Before I moved to Portland I lived in the Dallas area, a city where, in order to move from one part of the city to another, you have to mount what looks like a dropped plate of spaghetti made for a race of colossi, or perhaps a strewn handful of calcified Brobdingnagian rubber bands. Gridlock is a way of life; I once (very briefly) had a 40-mile one-way commute (to a part-time job!), and depending on my schedule and the time of day, a two-hour drive either to work or homeward (and a few…Continue

I live in an apartment. The apartment community in which I live is very neat and well-kept. Spring brings the landscaping crew out to trim the hedges and the grass, and plant new shrubbery and flowers where necessary.

We're onto this now, though. We know that 'browse' is just another word for 'shop', which coincidentally rhymes with 'chop', 'crop', 'flop', and perhaps one or two others that suggest curtailment, flaccidity, and a cessation of…Continue

I've always had an appreciation for all things Gothic.

The beauty of trees...Just before the stars say goodnight and morning breaks… when the world is silent for just a brief moment if you still your heart and look and listen, your ears will hear the ancient song of these great and glorious trees. If you are feeling anxious, sad, drained, or tense, then try hugging a tree.
