USk: Williams Shopping Trip

We took a trip to the store on Saturday, not our usual day.
Whenever we go to the Williams store we pass by this brightly colored
green and purple store, which I thought was a children’s bookstore.
Turns out it is a publishing house!

A great example of the disappearing culture of Portland,
being taken over by beige and cream and gold thinking… I love these crazy paint-jobs!

At the store there were magnolia
blossoms in varying stages.
Locals call these tulip trees, not sure why, but they are one of the few
brilliant pink early Spring flowering trees.
By noon I think the blooms
may have scattered, as this
was a day when we had a huge
windstorm that came with our downpour!
The local crows that visit the studio neighborhood were shocked by the suddenness and we watched them scramble for safety, some coming down on the pavement.  I love the rain, but not so much the wind. It slammed against the windows, but didn’t deter the Cal-Bag truck washers from their jobs washing the trucks!

I continue to journal about my mom, the system, and the family struggling to care for her.
When I can share I am sharing the writing too…
