BTW, Keshet will be hosting Rabbi Steven Greenberg (the only "out" gay Orthodox rabbi) when he comes to Portland in January.
Monday morning I made it my business to get back on my running program and went out at 8am in twenty-seven-degrees-Fahrenheit weather. kitiara, I'm right there with you!
Michael just got back from the Middle East (again). Hoping I can catch him for a beer before I head down to San Francisco next month for a visit with TNG.
Just down the street from where I live, the First Presbyterian Church has recently built a lovely park. The area used to be the Danmore, a venerable red brick building largely dedicated to housing for people in recovery. The recovery facility relocated and the Danmore was torn down last year, and a lot of us on Morrison Street were sorry to see it go, but the new garden is wonderful to look at. And the church's stained-glass window - long obscured by the Danmore - is now illuminated at night.
