Portland on a Saturday Afternoon

Spontaneous dancing to a marching band featuring a baritone sax solo--just one of the reasons I love living in Portland.

How Enchanting!

Day 22/365: Technicolor Mine with Pea Soup Waterfall

This photo was taken in the "mine" that is owned and worked by the Seven Dwarfs of Enchanted Forest*: Droopy, Snoozy, Wheezy, Lumpy, Dingy, Grouchy, and Smiley. Copyright infringement and the wrath of Disney's rabid legal staff successfully avoided!

*Enchanted Forest is an enchanting (and also terrifying) amusement park built in a forest near Salem, Oregon. Google it, if you're curious to learn more.

On the Plus Side

Day 14/365: Sunrise--As Seen from the Back Garden

Getting used to working in an office again--after being self-employed and working from home for 12 years--is a huge adjustment. I really can't say how well it's going. I just don't have enough perspective to make any judgments yet. One plus, though, was that I was up early enough to see this glorious sunrise on Friday.

I decided to start Project 365* again. It reminds me to be cognizant of my surroundings and helps prevent me from thinking about work all the time. It also is a great way to make sure I get out for a walk every day, so I can get some exercise and appreciate all the weird and wonderful things Portland has to offer. I've even found some weird (though not wonderful) things in the icky suburb where I now work. Who knew?

*Project 365 is a photo-a-day project on Flickr.
