I am thankful for the opportunity I’ve had to chronicle my life here. Don’t worry, I’m notContinue reading “Moving On”

All Drizzle, No Sizzle

Normally when the clock strikes midnight and we usher in a new year, things don’t feel all that different. Most years, there is little change. Tomorrow will look like yesterday.

It’s goingContinue reading “Ho to the Ho, Ho”

The Plan is to Fan This Spark Into a Flame

Hamilton is coming to Portland for a two-week run March 20-April 8, and tickets went on sale at 10:00 a.m. I had my doubts that I’d be able to snag any, especially when the 6 a.m. news showed people already lined up at the box office, but my goodContinue reading “The Plan is to Fan This Spark Into a Flame”
