I’ve been out of Portland for a week now. The beauty of Colorado has me in a trance. I’m used to my dreary Oregon winters where I become a vampire and the sun eludes me. But here I’ve learned to close my blinds during the day in order to keep my bedroom from reaching 80+ degrees, which at first I did not understand. The sun’s rays have kissed my skin and hypnotized me + my lifestyle has been flipped on its head >> which I enjoy doing from time to time. As Bjork would say, “comfort suffocates the soul”. I’ve seen the sunrise all but one day here, which I can’t really say that I’ve done in years. I guess what I’m getting at is I’m excited for this detour from my norm. I’m casting no shade on my city of Portland, though. Just happy to switch it up a bit. Kinda like when I was little and my brother and I would get out of the hot springs and see how long we could lay in the snow.
I went for a walk with my friend Luke yesterday >> his “back yard” is drool worthy.
