Well, 2020 is here. Next decade in progress. Big expectations? I don’t like to set goals for new years. You should not have to wait until new years eve to set them. They should be a part of your normal life. If I do set a goal it is only one. This way it is actually achievable. For me anyway.…

Christmas vacation has arrived for me. I am off for two weeks. These weeks are shaping up to be rainy and grey. Not the best conditions to enjoy the great outdoors as I planned to do. It’s been a week and a half of rain already and I am so longing for a patch of blue sky however brief. Time…

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…

Need to learn how to run in the rain. It will be raining for the rest of the winter so there you go. I have been sacking on running because I really hate running at work and today I want to leave work early so I can urban hike with my pooch. Work is slow and I have to get…

Yesterday I have connected with an old friend from Alaska on Facebook (of all places). The friend was surprised that I have left Alaska for Oregon and asked what it is I am doing here. That made me think. What exactly am I doing in Oregon? I could tell him about my job but really is this the right answer?…

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…

Don’t have much to say lately. Life is settled into a straight path: walk, work, run, walk, eat, sleep — precisely in that order. Running is going well though. I am at 10 miles. Finally where I left off before the broken wrist. Right now anything beyond 10 miles does not feel like a workout. I’ll be doing 10s for…
