When creating this spot for my web page I was trying to think of how I might best not come off as the biggest buffoon on the forehead of this great, big, planet. Then I realized something... I am human. For me this bespeaks volumes. It means that I am fallible, that I am not perfect. I have made mistakes, am making mistakes even as I write this, and will, inevitably, make mistakes in the future. When I wax romantically about myself and my role in this cosmic-shit tub we all dubiously call life I like to think of myself as the warrior- strong, loyal, full of discipline and honor. In reality, there are parts of me that follow those codes, but more to the point, I am a worker, and very proud of that. I finish what I start. I relish the journey. And I live... as well as any 38-year-old white male could hope to live in this world of skewed ideals and twisted attitudes (holy crap! I wrote this drivel five years ago. How time light speeds).

Suffice it to say, here within these "random thoughts" I will contradict myself, I will be wrong in some points and right in others, and I will make mistakes. However, as always, I hope in a small way that you, the reader, might garner a modicum of enjoyment.

Hell! I know I do.

This what old age feels like?
I've always said, pain gives you a better appreciation for life, but constant pain ruins life. This is the second time where I've been in such pain for so long that I begin to seriously wonder, "how am I going to survive this?" Makes me really appreciate the simple act of mobility.. just being able to walk. I take a lot of things for granted, as I think we all do. Sometimes it's good to get those harsh slaps of reality; to realize that things ain't that bad.

Moving forward now and waiting and wondering. The pain has slowly ebbed to something more manageable. I haven't been to the gym in over 5 months, due to injuries and sicknesses. And I can't help but think what might my life be like in the coming months. Will I be able to get back to my physical life? Or, are those days over? Guess, only time will tell.

Oh... Portland...
Portland city council just passed a new policy requiring landlords to pay up to $4,500 if they evict tenants with no cause or increase the rent more than 10 percent in a year. Which is great and needed and finally gives tenants the rights they've been clamoring for, but which is also, however, at least two years too late. My rent was raised two hundred dollars in two years, and a co-worker of mine had her rent raised five hundred dollars. This new policy is like wrapping a scarf around someone who has had their throat sliced open. The damage is done. The vicious, money-grubbing, bottom-feeders called land lords have had their day. And if this policy had happened when it should have it might have had an effect. As it is, this is just gonna help and support the invasive invasion of non-local residents who can afford to pay 1,300 or even 1,500 dollars a month for a one bedroom apartment.
