This city has a mighty pull to it. The longer I stay here the easier it is to see myself coming back.


I feel relaxed. That is a sign this has been a good vacation. Work has not been stressful lately, but it is still good to get away. I do not plan on taking a long vacation this year. Tht means I have to take a number of small vacations. The key to small vacations is to keep them cheap.

I do not come to Portland because I have very specific plans. I come to Portland to just slack off. It is the perfect city to just slack off in. It calls out to me to come here and do nothing. If I did any less I would have stayed in Don & Jenna house the whole time.
