i am an unrequited astronomer, pretend patient, gentle adventurer, pedal enthusiast, recovering calligrapher, occasional thespian and unfinished poet living in portland, oregon. contacting me via email is usually a good idea.
yesterday sven, leopoldo & i went to snowshoe at mt. hood (we ended up at white river, where you move through forest to timberline while gasping at this view). i do so like snowshoeing: it's friendly, relaxing, inexpensive, and i stay so much drier than i do when i'm snowboarding. afterwards, we stopped by the timberline lodge, one of those depression-era government projects with two-story wooden beams made from one solid tree. a simply stunning fade to twilight required us to shuffle around the tables in the bar until we were in front of the largest plate glass window in the lodge. [update 11.25.03: yes, i know the timberline lodge is where they shot the exterior of the shining. i know!]
hey, my parents found my blog! *waves* they sent me an email to call them, so i did tonight. they're in flagstaff on the way to visit my grandmother, and i promised i would call her on thanksgiving (thursday! geesh!).
speaking of thanksgiving, sven's coming with us to kay & reza's, but kay says the only vegetarian thing will be the stuffing, which just seems odd, but if true, means that sven & bryan might be sadly watching the rest of us eat. :(
