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…

Portland Planetary Dance at Kelley Point Park

July 17, 2016 from 10:30am to 1:30pm
