 MAYBE  it's because I have my ear on all things PORTLAND,
AND I have this passion for seeing artists in their work places.

The aim of is to understand creative processes and the places that contain them.

most talented artists, musicians, designers, and craftspeople in this great city.

Salty Oats

 Those of you who really know me,
know that I make a pretty mean cookie.
However, nothing I pull out of my oven comes close
to these incredibly tasty cookies.
I had to have ONE to go with my afternoon cup of  Karma.
 I am a lucky girl.

On a day like today,
making Haleakala Red Lentil Soup was first on my list.
It takes but a few minutes to make, all fresh ingredients and perfectly perfect.

1 cup red lentils
4 cups water
1/2 cup fresh chopped tomatoes
1 small chopped onion
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. coriander, I use more
S & P                          

The recipe comes from here.
I bought this book before my first cleanse.. a few years ago. 
It has stayed with me since, it's worn and bookmarked, 
I always have it at hand.

These sneaks have been doing some big west side exploring .. I'm
wishing they could talk and tell me a tale or twenty. 
Am miss, miss, missing the boy who wears these sneaks in those parts. 
I'm off to pick up MY boy and enjoy the weekend in the mountains. 
Here's to the time we have to share life.

sculpture workshop

We had a full house at the Sculpture and Structures Workshop last Friday.  I was in my glory with all these amazing sculptures created by  Beehive artists... talk about inspiration!  I think this collection of birch houses is one of my favorite projects of all time, we could have spent days working on them.
Thank you  Abby for taking these shots before they walked out the door.
Perhaps they have been added to.. with more paint or wood or crayon or clay. Perhaps they live amongst the dinosaurs and elephants, next to the train track and bin of wooden blocks.  
Or maybe they sit upon the table, for friends to admire and wonder about.  
I know I'm wondering about them.
