so valentine's day was fun. here we are.
yesterday, i went to an abbey at mt. angel, oregon. it has a museum on the grounds
i doubt you'll ever see these three in church together again.
there is a monk playing the organ up there. joel couldn't help but pray. he is confirmed afterall.
i bought a copy of the 1981 guiness book of world's records at the abbey's library.

so we cleaned out a lot of stuff from the basement to make more room. a house with a lot of different people moving in and out over three years accumulates a lot of shit. like two extra tv's?
here's an old watercolor i mailed to a friend.
and i picked up this album, blood is clean, by valet at the library.
i hope tomorrow is as sunny as today.

an early happy valentine's day! such a bull shit holiday for a lot of reasons like the need to buy gifts. i made something for my particular valentine in that box up there. unfortunately for some it does seem we need a nationally recognized holiday to signify a day to be as loving to one another as we should be everyday. tomorrow: a heart on every coffee drink.

a tax return means a new computer which means an opportunity for regular postings on here.
i went to maui and got back last week. here are some highlights.
old oceanside graveyards
western maui sunset
and camping for a week with this lady.
i still have art up at nationale in portland. check out may's lovely store. luckily i dodged the upcoming layoffs at the company where i work. i saw many good bands this weekend: dragging an ox through water, valet, castanets, eternal tapestry, date palms, some weird sin, tara jane o'neil. what a goldmine of shows with all but date palms being local bands. portland is a magic place.
