This Week in Portland, Sept 27- Oct 4, 2008

Hello, Portland! Please say hello and welcome to our newest PortlandNeighborhood mascot, my new puppy "Buddha". Buddha Puppy Naming a puppy is always an interesting challenge. My puppy is busily growing a wide smile of gnashing needle-sharp puppy teeth, which he is testing on everything in sight--including me! We're beginning to think a more appropriate name for him might be "Dogzilla", because he's starting to closely resemble the dog on Laughing Dog…

Baby Steps

Well, I haven't signed the lease yet, but the space is mine!



A really good deal for two days a week. Of course, I'm signing the lease at the worst possible point of Mercury Retrograde, but I'll take it with a grain of salt and Reiki and hope for the best. I like the LMT I'm sharing with. Haven't met the other one yet, but I'm not too worried. I hope she doesn't mind the scent of White Sage...



Now to keep the flow going. I'm finding that every time I encounter a triumph,… Continue

This Week in Portland, Sept 21 - 28, 2008

It's a cool rainy morning in Portland, heralding the arrival of....fall! I know--it's coming up quick! That's ok, besides planning to paint my old Portland front porch today (which now has to wait until a drier day), I plan to enjoy this relaxing, sleepy Sunday with indoor pursuits. As the days grow shorter and the air cooler (and wetter) I find myself wanting to spend more time cooking. And, what could be better on a cool day than a pot of fresh soup? Here's a quick and easy…

Fun with Wine...

Talk about confusing! Is anybody else out there as perplexed over the choices as I am? New World, Old World… Full bodied or not… Dry – well aren’t all reds? With these questions and many more in mind, I thought I would start a blog as I start my quest. Goal 1 is to figure out what to tell the wine steward when I’m asked what kind of wine I like (other than my usual answer of “red”). I’ll share any tidbits that I come across, and hope some of you out there will do the same.

Here my first… Continue

This Week in Portland September 14 - 21

I'll bet you've noticed by now that the nicer the weather is, the later the time it is that I submit the weekly blog. So, basically, the blog is anywhere from a day to two days late when its awesome out...which means you can probably start expecting to see it hit your inbox around Wednesday afternoon (3 days early) come winter!



Anyway, what a weekend! The weather gods love Portland right now...two amazing, supa-hot, end-of-summer days in a row! I spent my time (you guessed it)… Continue

Getting it off the ground...

Well, I'm here.



I've got my stuff. I'm ready.



Now I've just got to get it moving.



I've been practicing Reiki professionally for over a year now. I'm now what's called an Usui Reiki Master, I'm teaching, I've got some clients. Problem is, most of this is for trade and I've still got bills to pay.



Fortunately, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the work. The Work, I should say. I'm enjoying every bit of creating my own systems, creating my own style, developing the… Continue

This Week in Portland Sept 7 - Sept 14

Welcome to this week's installment of Amazing Autumn-Like Portland Weekend. Its not quite autumn just yet but I'm feeling it. Yesterday was incredible-- overcast and gray in the morning and, as yours truly predicted, brilliant blue skies by the afternoon. I spent the morning sipping a lovely latte from CoffeeHouse NW and was on the boat, sitting on the river on Sauvie Island by 3pm. My catch consisted of sunfish, catfish and what appeared to be a smallmouth bass-- all returned to the sea. No… Continue
