I left my little house in Santa Cruz and the man I love and moved to the big-sister city of San Francisco. And, well, I hated it. Not to wholly blame the city as there was a lot going on but suddenly there were no chickens in the yard. No yard! So Bello, my brown dog, and I journeyed on to Portland, Oregon where we have taken up residence in an airstream trailer. I will design Fall 08 here and dig in the garden when I am tired of being inside. Thinking of retrieving my little duck Piglet and bringing her here to keep me company. I am curious about what comes next. (update: I think it is hilarious that I predicted "digging in the yard" as a winter activity. Have you been to Portland in the wintertime?)
