As It Is

A little over a year ago, I moved back to Portland after 6 years, 5 months, and 20 days in San Francisco. I've been at my current place since then, and I'm reasonably happy with it, but I'm planning to move to another neighborhood in the near future - probably before summer.

I've spent most of the past year clearing out the unwanted debris and detritus of 50+ years, and so now - just as I'm getting ready to move - the place is approaching 'barely habitable'. (Insert George Carlin's "Too Much Stuff" sketch here.)

I'm living in the ground floor of a triplex in the Northwest neighborhood - one of the spendier parts of Portland, but still cheaper than San Francisco. I'll save more in rent, though, when I move.


Most of my books are boxed up and I've started putting them in storage. The ones still on the shelves are the ones I expect to access most frequently in the next six months or so. If you're curious about what's on my reading list,


I took photos of all the books I'd boxed, too, along with the numbered box labels, so I won't have to spend hours rummaging through boxes looking for that one book I just HAVE to have (as I've done, I am ashamed to admit, many times in the past).
