Ten more days left of November. Time tends to fly the older you get. I’ve been working on drawings a lot lately. They are coming along nicely. Being on ETSY and selling some gives me extra motivation. If anyone reading this and would like to check them out: HTTP://etsy.com/shop/ghost4boris. It is nice to know that someone else likes your art.…

It is the end of October and the temperature is still in the 60’s. It is crazy. I hope that winter will appear sometime and make me happy with a little frost in the mornings. We went to a field this morning and somehow spent 3.5 hours there. Time flew as there were a lot of people and other beasties…

Today is a lazy day for me. I started it with an intention to run but quickly realized that today might take more effort as I hiked 10 miles the day before so naturally, I bailed out and went back to sleep. Besides, it was rainy outside of my window and rain always gives pleasure to staying inside. Not much…

Some days are tougher than others. Today is that day. No reason that I can determine. Everything is the same. And besides, I went on a 10-mile walk with my beastie in the morning. That usually takes care of all the trash that tends to reside in the mind. So yes, I have no idea why. It just how it…

Today was a day when I did not do anything. I bailed out of the running yesterday because of a few rain sprinkles and a minor hurt in my knee. Deep in my soul I know I just bailed out because I got too lazy. Now I am waiting for my dog to want to go outside which he is…

Smoke is here. As if COVID was not enough life throws you another curveball. My windows have been closed for a week and because my house is so well insulated it is incredibly hot. My poor dog! Work is stressful with everyone teaching online. You’d think faculty would get used to it now seeing how they have been doing it…

I miss hiking. COVID is brutal in this respect. I am afraid that when I get to the trail there would be tons of other people and it ould be hard to pass them on a narrow trail. Opee and I go fast. We cloak a mile in 20 minutes. We both like to be fast as it feels more…

I don’t post political content very often simply because I hate politics (especially now) because it makes me feel incredibly angry and powerless. But this article paints the picture of the racist, bigoted, authoritarian trump (I just can’t stomach giving him a capital letter) before he came to power. It shows clearly what many either have missed or disregarded for…

When you are down you are down. Nothing will make it better. I am used to it seeing how I have lived with depression for so long. Just have to buckle up and wait it out. That’s the hardest part. It’s hard to write about depression issues as there is still a stigma attached to it. At least I think…

Yesterday on a walk I saw a man on the trail shaving himself with an electric razor in front of a tree. He looked utterly content humming a tune under his breath. Keep Portland weird indeed. I have been living here for 6 years. I thought it was less until someone asked me the question. I hardly believe it. Time…
