Photo of the Day – Broadway Bridge in Morning

A while back, I took a trip to Seattle. I like taking the train to Seattle and I used to park at my former workplace. A great place to park, but with the downside, you had to walk to the train station. The walk to the train station crosses over one of my favorite Portland…

Quote of the Day – Colin Fletcher on Being Naked

Heh. I have a reason for today’s quote. It’s not that I desire to see more people roaming through the world naked as a jaybird, it’s that on this day in history, it’s told that Lady Godiva rode naked, on horse, through Coventry, England. 🙂 By walking naked you gain far more than coolness. You…

Quote of the Day – Thornton Wilder on Soldiers

In the United States, today we observe Memorial Day. A day, where we thank those who have served our country for their sacrifices, sometimes even the ultimate sacrifice. Many soldiers I’ve met are dedicated and patriotic and I’m grateful for their service, for their protection of my rights and grateful for those who came home….

Quote of the Day – Adrienne Rich on Truth

This is quote a powerful quote when you sit and ponder it. What is truth, well that depends on who is telling it, don’t you think? At any rate, enjoy. 🙂 There is no ‘the truth’, ‘a truth’ — truth is not one thing, or even a system. It is an increasing complexity. The pattern…
