Busy week! I won’t add everything here but here’s a few things.
We finally saw Star Wars Last Jedi. On our walk to Laurelhurst Theatre, I caught a picture of a new Forest for the Trees mural.
On the way back, it was raining pretty heavily and we were headed to Beulahland for a beer and to talk about the movie, when we caught the mural again, with a tree shimmering in the rain, looking like it was a continuation of the mural. I didn’t really capture it (I’d’ve needed more time and a better camera) but in real life, it completely took my breath away.
Editing this to add a link to an article about murals around Portland.
Friday, friends surprised us with tickets to see a magician. I am not going to lie, I was nervous about it as I am not a huge fan of audience participation. Mostly because I tend to get chosen (and that was true this night too, I was chosen to do things second most!). Venue was tiny – it was in the bar area of Hawthorne Theatre:
That’s the back row, nowhere to hide!
The show was great, thanks Marcio and Abby!! Nate Staniforth surprised me again and again, and was kind to people. I’d see him again for sure.
