Read Your Town

Last week I discussed libraries and book stores. This week I'm writing about books. Specifically, books about Portland, and books set in Portland. Portland is amusing, and has tons of amusements, and has quite a few museums, but She is also a Muse. Maybe it's the air, or the green, or the spooky atmosphere; something makes people want to read and write, and people generally like to read and write about what they know. This city is so ripe with storytude it's no wonder many can't…

Meet the Prose

I'm sitting in a library in Portland, Oregon.

Actually I'm sitting in Ledding Library, which is in Milwaukie.  I live in Milwaukie too, but I live so close to the line that if you address a letter to me you can write either Milwaukie or Portland on the envelope and the letter will reach me.  I'm thinking the founding fathers (and mothers, if applicable) of “The Dogwood City of the West”…

Bridge Town

Anyone who has an interest in getting anywhere beyond his or her own neighborhood in this town is going to be crossing a bridge.  Lucky us, there are quite a few of them.

Look, even a dedicated east-sider like me has to cross the river now and then. Usually it's to go downtown or…

Portland, Oregon: The Bushtit & the knitting of the most awesome sock

An amazing little birdie lives in my yard and every season she creates a most wondrous thing: an all natural knitted sock.  It's actually quite cool to see the builder at work when you know it only takes a few days to craft the sock so you are in fact, lucky to see this! Once all built, she's all moved in with her brood in a flash.…

A Clean Break

An aspect I love about Portland: there are plenty of reasons for me to leave it.

“Oh no he DI’INT!”, I hear you sputtering, your fist clenching in rage, sending the frothy crest of your latté spouting over your knuckles.  Tut-tut, you misunderstand me.  I mean to say that I’m not just a big fan of the city, but of the state in which it resides as well.  How lucky are we that we have pretty much any and all manner of topographical wonders no more than a couple hours’ drive in any…

Portland Planetary Dance at Kelley Point Park

July 17, 2016 from 10:30am to 1:30pm
Portland Planetary Dance is a dance with a purpose. It aims to bring peace among people and harmony with the Earth.

As people run, walk, or simply stand in a series of concentric circles we create a moving mandala. By dancing to the steady heartbeat of the drums, we become one collective body, and each…See More
