...except for today, in which I awoke to the sound of rain. Lovely, refreshing rain. Huzzah!
Last weekend we escaped the rush of Portland, and festivals, and rafting trips (sadface) to see a couple of friends get married on a farm in Southern Oregon. It was absolutely beautiful and well worth the 5-hour drive for a 24-hour trip. Driving down I-5 that far is a good reminder of how diverse Oregon really is - and how easy it is to believe in the Right and True-ness of one's prevalent culture when you're so thickly immersed within it.
Bible quotes all. over. the. highway.

But now I'm back in the liberal paradise of Portland proper, where I will again unpack and repack for this weekend's trip to the Black Sheep Family Reunion at Tidewater Falls, a beautiful coastal forest oasis, featuring fire performance by BRIDGETOWN REVUE! See you there!
