Ah, Portland. My sweet home, changing so fast and leaving me with so many mixed feelings. I started this website back in 2007, when I felt like Portland could use a little more affection. Then I went through a phase of feeling like Portland was loved to death. And I guess I’m now coming out the other side, and wanting to remember to keep some affection for this dear place.

So this site is stuff about Portland. Old and new.

If I can relatively easily reach a place from Pioneer Courthouse Square using my feet, a bicycle, or public transit, I declare it to be central Portland!

Except for a detour for college, I’ve been here my whole life. This is mostly a wonderful thing.
