Portland is a mossy covered hole right now. The homeless/garbage/graffiti situation is out of control. We hang in there, but there is unaddressed suffering all around, and the local government is AWOL. Things are slowly crawling back to a new kind of normal – some of my bubble are now fully vaccinated. Spring is springing. The house work is starting to move outside now that the weather is deep into bipolar spring phase. We survived the ice storm and 72 hours without power by skiing, snow biking, and general snow play – and a lot of warm blankets, take-away beer & food adventures… a prelude to spring wanderings a bit further afield.
