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?

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…
