I can't tell you how happy I am with the weather we've been having lately: relatively warm, completely dry and partially to mostly sunny. In November. That's uncommon at the least for Portland, and I want to publicly express my gratitude for fear that ingratitude would upset the weather gods and make them cry. Inches of tears. Rockstar and I took advantage and had a long walk yesterday. We came across the abandoned Meier & Frank building and became acquainted with our local optimistic tagger. We didn't meet her, (the cursive makes me think it's a her) but we saw her work. I think she expressed principles dear to her heart to the point of exhaustion, then bid farewell. Sleep-tight graffiti girl.
