About “Cavendish” The ultimate slapstick prop, comedic use of the banana can be dated back at least four thousand years.

We snuck away from the boxes for the weekend and headed up to the Hood River area of Oregon. We stayed at the Mt Hood Hamlet B&B in Parkdale. It was a lovely, friendly place and since it’s off season, we practically had the place to ourselves. In the mornings I would bring my books […]
Today marks week 20 of my pregnancy with our little Juniper berry. Wow! Halfway! The consensus is that I really look pregnant now. I definitely feel pregnant. I get a few good kicks every day and lots of flutters. I wish there were more, they are so reassuring, but I bet I’ll be sorry I […]

Hello beautiful girl. We got you just about nine months ago as of January 6th. You have been so snugly lately. You are so adorable, I can stare at you for hours. We can’t believe we wound up with such an amazing dog. We love you so much. You are getting much better at not […]
Here are my favorites from last night’s First Thursday. It was cold outside and traffic was slow early on, though it looked like it was picking up as I was leaving. Maybe I smelled bad. There is some amazing art this month in Portland. Make sure you get out there. Kristen Miller at PDX Contemporary […]
Our dog is on a roll. She’s making progress so fast right now and we’re so proud of her. It’s like she can tell that we are head over heels in love with her and she’s milking us for attention and snacks. I’ve started letting her off the leash a little, just in places I […]
Martin Kersels is a big man making big art. Most of his sculptures and photographs have to do with size relationships. Human hamster wheels, no rx giant shoes, look giant nests. His works tend to accentuate mass and gravity. Martin Kersels Lecture Series through PNCA 6:30 p.m. Thursday, sovaldi October 8, 2009 The Lab at […]
Dear Mississippi, We’ve been together for 6 months now and I can’t imagine life without you. You are so wonderful, such a face, you could melt the heart of any human or dog. Cats, I think you’ve got some work ahead of you to win them over. I’m so glad you picked us that fateful […]
Nell Warren’s exhibition “Storied” at PDX Contemporary art is a refreshing example of a contemporary twist on the tradition of landscape painting. Warren’s work, with it’s highly calligraphic, tiny brushstrokes combined with large fields of color, borders on abstraction. Her use of muted colors and flat rigid surface, had a calming effect on me, they […]
Last night’s opening of PICA’s Time Based Art Festival was quite a scene. The walls of once abandoned Washington High School were once again filled with people. Ages must have ranged from 0 to 100. The walls were decorated with colored copier paper and colored rubber band garlands adored the front staircase (works by Kenneth […]
Today I was feeling really under the weather so I decided I needed some fresh air. I took Mississippi for a walk to the Library. It’s a little less than 3 miles there and back. She sat quietly outside the library while I returned our books and she got a nice treat when I returned. […]
Last night’s First Thursday was a big buzz. So many people! So many hipsters in glitter and boas. Such a great scene. I love this town. Mike Bragg at Ogle Videos, photo studies and specimen jars of rootlike objects. Obsessive detail. Very very cool. Beautiful installation. At The Life Art Gallery. I don’t know who […]
Yesterday Mississippi experienced a large body of water for probably the first time in her life. We went to George Rogers Park in Lake Oswego where dogs are welcome to swim and play in the water. This park totally rocks! There is a cute beach and lots of sandy areas to hang out on. There […]
On Saturday Tom and I took a Portland-wide tour of the city’s backyard chicken coups. The Tour De Coops is an annual event organized by Growing Gardens, a non-profit dedicated to creating and supporting gardens for low income families. Each year Tour De Coops finds Portland chicken keepers willing to share their backyards and knowledge […]
Yep, it’s been a while. I post all my apple photos to my flickr account though the magic of my eye-fi card but I’ve been too busy to do multiple blog posts every day so the doggy won over the apples. She’s generally more interesting I think. Anywhooooo, here’s a photoey blog post for you. […]
