That sick bee crawling on my driveway, a bout of  diarrhea, the rapid disappearance of ladybugs and honey bees in my garden all added to the suspicion that someone had sprayed herbicides. Was it the electric company or the owners of the property?  The next day everything that had been green along the driveway turned yellow. 
Is not Oregon and environmentalist a synonym? 
 As it turns out both the power company and the owner of the duplex I live in have been spraying herbicides periodically. They both insist that their spays don't affect us humans. Just tell me where the bees went then because my plants  need to be pollinated.   Is anyone else concerned about this?

If people would consider that it is a non-negotiable 15 plus commitment before adopting a dog and making sure they sterilize their pet this would be a start.

I read that 1 our of 7 Americans receive food stamps.One person = $200.  There are communities  where those stats are much higher. The government is threatening to reduce food stamps for poor people? How could this happen? Americans have always stood for equality. If basic needs of humans are not met it will begin a revolution.

Sunshine in Oregon- no rain for weeks. Not common but this may mean I don't have to move to Tucson.

I'm offering one free pass to the Street Photography one-day workshop in Portland Oregon on July 14, 2013 hosted by PMPA .Just tell us in less than a page about yourself and why you want to come. 11 A.M. to 7 P.M.  It's going to be a lot of fun and getting dirty.

Iraq 10 years later- 2 A.M.  American soldiers in Baghdad raid  a house after receiving a tip that the house was a gun transport center for the opposition. By the time the loud tank and humvees   rolled up the men had all fled.  No weapons or traces of such were found in the house, just women and children.  This is a woman soldier searching the Iraqi woman, and a woman soldier at the door on the left from 91st Engineers.  Far right is Iraqi translator who named himself Sunny.

“Do stuff. be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration's shove or society's kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It's all about paying attention. attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. stay eager.”

Introduction
I am a visual anthropologist living in Oregon. Some call me a photojournalist, photographer, animal lover, human rights advocate, teacher and photo coach.  I don't want to live my life about "me" attempting to become someone important, famous or rich. 
It is that young girl that I hugged when her brother was murdered; the kid I get to laugh with over some silly joke, my rescued dog who now lives a life of bliss. It's the  little moments, the serendipity, risks, adrenaline for justice and the challenge to learn how to love better each day that inspire me. I thank God for coming into my life at age 17 and giving me his unrelenting love. I've been re-learning ever since then. Be patient with me as I came from minus 0 and will be learning until I die  how to love you better.  

 I have included video to make a more complete atmosphere. Come on by my website http://www.borkgrenphoto.net

I had once before tried electrolysis but this time it worked. Meg is excellent and I highly recommend her if you are serious about hair removal. She'll get it done.
