YES. Everyone, I have landed in Portland!
And Suzy, you are in NY again, but never there. I think Portland won’t be like LA, I think I’ll actually be here for the most part of it all!
You were snowed-in in Maryland and I was driving past Mt. Hood in sleet and snow and life.
Funny thing about the Amish…. is that last night I met with friends here and randomly played bar Jeopardy … a category: THE AMISH. I did pretty well, being from Pennsylvania and all.
SO, so so so so …
I’m posting my pictures, I hope they are somewhat interesting. But I need a *real* camera.
I’ve spent my first night in my house in SE Portland. It is a room (with shared kitch, bath) in a house still running a vintage clothing business out of the LR and basement. Two other queer roomies. Feels very much like hostel life, which is totally great for a month being new to a place. I’ve set up my things and cat and reality for the next few weeks…..
Now with my Lord, The Internet, I shall find
the health food store
a place for yoga
a used bike
maybe a new bike
the best thrift store for a rain coat.
not in any specific order…
THE TRIP & PORTLAND…
(my little yellow house for the month)
