“Some years ago, I was lucky enough invited to a gathering of great and good people: artists and scientists, writers and discoverers of things. And I felt that at any moment they would realise that I didn’t qualify to be there, among these people who had really done things. On... Continue reading

On today’s episode of “Walk Me or My Spots Will Fall Off” we encountered something really special. On some days we walk past a lone grove of oak trees in the middle of a field. It’s sort of remarkable that someone has held onto this property with homes around it... Continue reading

It's fine. We're fine. Everything is fine. A brutal divorce kept me from writing or creating anything here. And then selling our home of 26 years to sanctimonious people that nobody liked while local wildfires threatened to burn it all down anyway, and finally moving (which is a hell unto...

Should auld acquaintance be forgot And auld lang syne! For auld lang syne, my dear, For auld... Continue reading

Ahhh... every January the First United Methodist Church in Portland showcases their quilters. You can see a past year here. They do not disappoint. Most of these were newer creations with a few well loved and well worn ones included. It's a bright spot of color to brighten up anyone's... Continue reading

If you're able to zoom in on this photo you'll see these sisters are smiling and laughing. I loved this photo as soon as I picked it up. I suspect there was even more laughter with the person who took the photo. Can you feel the cold snow when it... Continue reading

Wowza. Abundance on Labor Day. Last year the two (semi-dwarf) Bartlett pear trees I have produced seven pears between the both of them. Having planted them as saplings quite a few years ago I really haven't expected much out of them since then. This year? 114 pears. How do trees... Continue reading

Ah... well, they don't look too hot for the amount of clothing they have on in this photo-postcard from August 1911, now do they? She is sending it from the Bay Area to Hammon, Oregon. From what I can read of her handwriting she asks how Mr. North is doing... Continue reading

Hola, amigos! We went to a family wedding a week or so ago in Southern California. Took a ton of photos because: so incredible. (Also, thank you airline/hotel/and rental car mileage programs! #freeisaverygoodprice) What is it about palm trees that it is such a balm for northern souls? You see... Continue reading

Went to meet a lonnnnnngggg time friend at some local lavender fields and hang out with her while she painted. She's a professional fine artist and does a lot of plein art competitions. This particular farm had a certain charm so it's the place she has been coming back to.... Continue reading

Anybody here ever say "Rabbit, Rabbit!" at the beginning of each month? Apparently it's a thing. A very old thing. So here we are at the beginning of March and on the cusp of spring... and I think I might adopt this wee bit of superstition just for the fun... Continue reading

So January was all about the cleaning up and putting away of the holiday. It's a chore that I just loathe. This past week I've been housecleaning in between work projects and just when I think I'm done I find something else that should be cleaned. (Depending on my mood... Continue reading

Well, if I had my druthers I’d stay here at Portland's 1913 historic Benson Hotel for Christmas and pitch all other “traditions.” No cooking, no cleaning, no running around… I’d bring my family and I’d smuggle my dog in, let her jump on the bed, and stay through New Year’s... Continue reading
