Mario's Windows

The windows are about as close as I get to Mario's. Even at 60% off the $500 t-shirt would be $200. Maybe in my next life!

Great day for a trip to the Lan Su Chinese Garden here in Portland. We were entertained with music from this Zheng played by a very talented musician.

Shakespeare at the Multnomah County Library

books in running brooks, 
sermons in stones, and 
good in everything.

Swedish Voice

When we visited Stockholm, it seemed everyone spoke softly. Inside voices were used outside. Sitting in a restaurant, you wouldn't know the business or activities of everyone around you. Charley took me back to Sweden when he asked for two dollars for the bus. Maybe that's why I gave it to him.
Charley, he said...

Visit the Lan Su Chinese Garden while it's raining and you'll likely see the garden in a totally different way than you usually would.

Fork or Chopsticks

Eating at Toast & Pho, we were presented with this choices of chopsticks or forks to eat our lunch. The food was served quickly, filling and adequate. Most of the other patrons were regulars.

This woman was reading at Lovejoy Bakers. I couldn't resist the symmetry of the vertical lines with all of the texture in those characters.

Out to dinner at Bewon, one of my favorite restaurants. It's always great to be able to play with your food and drink...
