Especially gentle, she is; especially striving towards interesting work and interesting life, she is; especially interested in doing cool things with cameras, she is. (She's made her own calendars.) And especially concerned with nurturing Portland's young LGBT community, she is; she volunteers with the Sexual Minority Youth Resource Center, and gets plenty of hugs for that work.
I met her a couple of years ago at a s00j house concert. We run into each other occasionally on Portland's streets: she explores the city much like I do, snapping lots of shots in the process. She's good to her friends and family: good at visiting with them and eating special restaurant meals with them. She's gotten to do that today with at least one good friend.
May more people go "That lovelyangel, she's good people."
