Designs in the sand


I purchased this fine zen garden and populated the empty sandscape with two patterned planets. Thanks to the artist and his invention’s unique ability to occupy a restless mind for a time on a rainy Portland morning some weeks ago.

Right now, the sandscape sits on top of a small cabinet in the office. May it soon find a new home on a fine modern bookshelf, if we can find the right one for the empty wall in that room.

Pictures from Portland, April 2017

I just returned from Portland on Tuesday, a weekend trip filled with family, mostly, and not an insignificant amount of wine.

I took a few photos while I was there of the beautiful country—and the wineries, of course.

It was relaxing and fun. I got to read a book and a half, and see cousins and aunts and uncles I haven’t seen for years, and unplug for a little while.

These grasses abound. The nectar of the gods fills those golden barrels to the brim.
