So I find myself in Portland, Oregon, a city I have always enjoyed visiting. My partner, Janet, our daughter, Jessie, and I moved here in June of this year for family reasons. This summer was beautiful: warm and sunny. Not Austin warm, but a gentle warmth needing a sweater in the evenings.
I grew up in Seattle, the weather is not shocking to me, but after 20 years in the southern part of the U.S., I find myself a little chilly here. One forgets how truly magnificent it is in the Pacific Northwest. I decided to quit my job in Austin, spend the summer hanging out with Jessie, and give writing a try (thanks to Janet).
This is all new to me, this blogging stuff, I just hope I don’t screw up too badly. At least I saw a delete button earlier.
Take care, jenn
