Today on a walk with my beastie I came across a wandering stray dog in one of the neighborhoods of Hillsboro. The dog was beautiful but had no collar and had beginnings of what looked like mange and a wound on top of his tail. He did not come to me but came to Opee and Opee stood there not…

Day whatever into COVID pandemic. I don’t care what day it is anymore. In fact, for the most of the day, I thought it was Thursday and the only reason I came back to reality is that I got a notification on my cell to pick up the wine which I knew I scheduled for Friday. Everything is blurred and…

The rainy season is finally here. According to my Google lady, it is supposed to rain non stop for at least 2 weeks. The difficult part is not the rain though. Rain gear can fix that. The difficult part is grey skies. Just like in Alaska the dark fucks with your brain here it is the grey. Might be the…

Winter is: rain and raincoat scarves and hats sweaters walking in a fog freshly baked bread hot borsch hot cocoa hot tea red wine and port cozy blankets hiking with no one on the trails iced ponds slowed time books for pleasure occasional snow naked trees muddy shoes hidden mice walking in the dark
