Music:Foo Fighters, "There is Nothing Left to Lose"
A corner of Portland
I've lived in Portland since January 2001. I was born here, too, and visited about once a year for my entire youth, and my appreciation of the town has grown over time. (My perception of it is more complex, as is suited for growing up and seeing negatives as well as positives; I'm not blind to Portland's issues.) Also, I get around a lot of it. About quarter to 6:00 tonight, after walking down Hawthorne Blvd., I was waiting for the bus — at a stop about three blocks from where I first lived, back in 2001 and 2002 — before I moved to my apartment in the Brooklyn neighborhood.
