celebration vs. devastation

white dress
grey ash


passionate love
indescribable fear

nervous butterflies
soaring rubble


overwhelming joy

unresolved conclusions


This is the conflict I feel when I think about September eleventh and twelfth.

Portlanders Agree!

Reasons why I love Portland.
I just need to remind myself.

It's pretty.

Powell's Books. Because it is magical. Even if you don't call yourself a book lover, there is always something to lose yourself in... It's a city of books for crying out loud! TheHawthorne location is charming too.

The Portland Timbers
We have a soccer team! And we're good! And we know it!
There ain't no pity in the rose city!

My favorite breakfast in the world at this humble place.

Seeing a "picture show" with the love of my life here.
It's real nice.

I'm not a fan of dogs.
However, we had a fun date night here.

The zoo. With old friends and new memories.

Mt. Tabor - always something interesting
(let's not talk about the recently
frowned-upon occurrences that
happened there)

Best pizza around.

Yes. These links took a while.

This is brilliant.

I could use one of these.

Help me out, Bob

Remember when I wrote this post?

It's still the most popular.

Perhaps I should revisit discussing influential singers/songwriters/legends.

Just a though.

On Not Wanting to do Finals

Welp. Do em anyways.


figure out your score in the class and what it would be if you just didn't write the final paper. Lets see here....

yeah, I should probably do it...
am I going to? You ask.

Yes. However, I don' t have to do very well to pull of a decent grade. And by decent I mean an A, so don't judge me.

I think I'll live by these rules next semester.

I'm just being a whiner. I am so glad I have the ability to be back in school eating up all this knowledge. So stop all that judgement.

The beginning

And so it begins
this person is here
Her awareness has yet to develop to our level
the awareness of others
of humanity
It won't be long that she will recognize you
your laughter
your anger
your trickery

Forgive me
I am angry already
The reality this person will face
the sorrow
the pain
it is going to hurt
You are going to hurt her

Promise me this
promise as if your life depended on it
you will try
and beyond try
with all your might
to love those around you
not for them
not for yourself
not for me
but for this person

she is perfect
