  1. That is the happiest smile i have ever seen on Teals face in the last picture of this blog. And yes i can totally imagine you, teal as a wet seal playing in the surf, a Selkie indeed.
  2. I am so proud of you Teal. Your courage and your openness, your authenticity is remarkable and reveals the pain we are all suffering as the world turns toward intolerance, hate and oppression. It's not just you, people are being seduced by the sweet taste of self righteousness into intolerance and anyone who seeks to show them the painful truths will be ostracized, alienated and demonized.

Knowing the difference. We study and learn, we live and experience, we pray and we meditate. Over time comes wisdom and peace, acceptance, patience and
  6. I so agree with your comment that to thrive in Portland you must be active. I lived there for a number of years and found my rain parka was my best friend.
