Color Me PDX

See that? That's my attempt to photograph something truly marvelous while out with my camera in the Belmont area this last weekend. As you can see, I failed mercilessly. Remember last week when I complained that the rain (or, rather, my inability to plan and adapt to conditions) messed up my…

Best Laid Plans, or No They Weren't

You know how a writer's chief complaint is usually blank-page syndrome and the struggle to drum up something to write about?

Well, today's entry is pretty easy and photo-intensive, because I spent a considerable amount of time yesterday gathering local color and some snaps of Southeast Belmont Avenue and Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard, in preparation for updating PortlandNeighborhood.Com's neighborhood pages.…

Let's Go Out To The Movies!

I used to go to the movie theater every week when I was a kid, sometimes twice a week if I (meaning my parents) could afford it. If it had spaceships and monsters or ghosts or aliens in it, I wanted to see it. I even managed, at the age of 14, to get into an R-rated horror film called Wicked, Wicked (and I did myself no favors, because it was a terrible movie that no quantity of bare breasts could improve, but nevertheless haunted me for weeks afterward).…

Morning Walk

I've lately been suffering from a combination of schedule-fu and malaise, and perhaps just a touch of early spring laziness. For sure my energy has been oscillating like mad, accompanied by a very slight scratchiness in the throat and a head that feels loosely weighted by unsecured ballast. I can only assume, being exposed to school-age kids often these days, that I have run afoul of some invisible wiggly menace.

Because of this off-kilterness I've been less active, and naturally this…

Shades of Sunshine

The first tour we took of Portland after having moved here from the Dallas area, I found myself blinking and squinting more than usual.

I don't suffer allergies, but I thought the sudden eye sensitivity might have to do with some airborn microfuzzy to which my system was unfamiliar.  I knew that a lot of people had problems with pollen and wondered if I had finally been introduced to a variety that found Garrison membranes irresistable.  My father was susceptible to…
