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…Continue

Hey Portlandia! The Weather Godz say you may be able to put your raft away and start using the pavement again-- the rain may end this weekend. For a few minutes, at least...

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.…Continue

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.

I've lately been suffering from a combination of schedule-fu and malaise, and perhaps just a touch of early spring laziness.

I can only assume, being exposed to school-age kids often these days, that I have run afoul of some invisible wiggly menace.

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…Continue
