This city excites me. It also overwhelms me at times. Yet there are so many stories on every corner, waiting to be told. I feel compelled to tell them. It is a place I revisit and revisit again. I don't have to walk far to find inspiration in this city. Portland is weird, yes, but it is that weirdness and diversity which makes it so interesting. Here are just a few of the faces and places that inspired me recently. Sometimes I'll wander and seek them out, other times I'll sit and simply be still, letting the stories come to me. I hope you, like me, can see the beauty held on every corner of this crazy beautiful city.
