Tapping Away

Still stumbling along. On a tablet tonight, from some apartment. So slow.

VBC site visit with Sunanda today, old hippie much recovered post Eugene incident. Lives in a 12 x 6 Calistoga unless I have wires crossed.

Village Building Collective is in its 14th year.  Was at Saint David of Wales where Food Not Bombs was also welcomed, same chapter. Now it's Sunnyside Methodists who get the focus. Cool.

We had lunch at New Seasons after I slept through a staff meeting, duh. Up to 3 AM in my defense.

Enough for this tablet tonight.

Final ISEPP Lecture

I am hoping this was the season finale and not the grand finale, but much is beyond ISEPP's control.

That's the tiny nonprofit behind the Linus Pauling Memorial Lecture Series which Terry organizes, and Mentor Graphics sponsors, in tandem with other sponsors, including schools such as Oregon Episcopal.

Terry gave the wrap up talk and did manage to connect the dots for people, especially if one had been to the other lectures he referenced, which I had for the most part. Terry might be described as less apocalyptic sounding than some, even in the face of ongoing climate change.

The Heathman Dinner was excellent. Good catching up with Buzz, stroke victim recovering with Final Cut Pro.

Another good restaurant nearby: Southpark next to Arlington Club across the street, where Applewhites stayed that time they came to visit (in 1996).  I ate there today (at Southpark), discussing Oversight business with a Friend.  The wait staff stopped serving water owing to a public health advisory.

Double Whammy

May First was a big day for yours truly.

The May Day mobilization went off without a hitch, me the photographer, like last year.  The AFSC Portland page is even better as another photographer took over from me once the march got underway.

Then Trevor had a book signing at Mother Foucault's, also well attended, with the author reading from his Confessions of a Failed Egoist.
