Ain’t it funny how the night moves
When you just don’t seem to have as much to lose


I read a beautiful post by a friend...
it talked about a place (Portland, actually)
and how it felt comfortable and safe...
like home.

It made me think about my drive in to work today.

and vanish into the gully... only to emerge moments later with four-wheel drive kicking up a storm.
On more than one occasion I thought ...
"shyte man... you live here... you'd think you'd get snow = slow down by now..."

I mean really...
