In 2009, I moved from NYC to PDX by way of a rental SUV and a moving company. I settled in the SE side of town and was bombarded with great coffee, new friends, and pretty decent food. I made the best of it and trying to survive. Sometimes that’s a tall order…
In the summer of 2013, I moved to Eugene, OR to attend law school. This city…has flavor.
With all things these days, I’m trying to take it as it comes.
Things are as they are.
So that’s life, then: things as they are?
It picks its way on the blue guitar.
A million people on one string?
And all their manner in the thing,
And all their manner, right and wrong,
And all their manner, weak and strong?
