bridge to autumn

lazy post, procrastination edition

It’s been a bit too long since I’ve posted, and while there has been quite a bit that I could have written about, I’ve just been too busy to get around to it. So, in the meantime, here’s a pretty photo of a new-ish coffee joint that I visited yesterday: Ristretto Roasters in the Schoolhouse Electric Building on NW Nicolai in Portland, Oregon.

waterfront concert was awesome!

Last night, after a one year hiatus, the Oregon Symphony returned to Tom McCall Waterfront Park, at the west end of the Hawthorne Bridge, to play a wide selection of music for well over 10,000 area music lovers. It was so good to be back! The mood of the orchestra was light, optimistic, and to see thousands of people assembled (some since before our morning dress rehearsal at the park!) to enjoy a spectacular summer evening was so energizing for us!
