what a touching tribute...He looks like a beautiful man. Love the family in front of the picket fence shot, the crumpled car, the nehru jacket, the cooking shots, the music...calling all angels...The applause so perfectly timed. (This reminded me of the father I lost; died four years ago in January and still feels like just last month.) A life lived hugely.

After the election - I sit down and remind myself that this too will pass. 
It was election night. Early results were coming in from Rhode Island, South Carolina, New York. I woke up my dog and we went to the pond and sat, watching a storm roll in and listening to redwing blackbirds shout out warning...

I can almost see the cosmos looking at our country's hubristic backwardness, and saying, "They too, shall pass." But thanks Naseem.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Enjoy. 
‘Say Something‘ is perhaps one of the most difficult songs to cover as the original by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera is already one of the most perfect songs you could ever hear. But that didn’t stop Pentatonix giving it their best, and I am not surprised. Listening to them sing this emotional…

Another side to the story
By Naseem Rakha I was a political reporter for the Consortium for Public Radio from 1995 to 2003, which means I covered most of John Kitzhaber's first two terms in office. I remember him as a smart, articulate and passionate...

Quite a remarkable story.
As a skinny teenage busboy, Juan Romero knelt beside a mortally wounded Bobby Kennedy at the Ambassador Hotel. On Saturday morning, more than 42 years later, he knelt again, this time beside RFK's...

 I certainly would have been safer had I not gone up that road...
Oregon's first winter storm was predicted to hit yesterday, and oh-boy, you'd think the sky was falling. Portland metro newscasters pulled out all their doomsday-ware: "Up to the minute Doppler Radar," webcams of soon-to-be-s...

Incredible tribute to loss
Public - a year ago

I used to live in New Mexico and while I miss it all of the time, at least I do not have to miss the green chile taste unique to that special quadrant of the planet. I started ordering from the Hatch Chile store about four years ago, and each August we wait with anticipation for our large box of Big Jims. That evening, we make a party of it. Beer, wine, and the spicy scent of roasted chilies. Anyone who helps, gets wonderful green chile quesadillas, and are sent home with their own zip-lock bag of green heaven. I HIGHLY recommend this farm's chiles. I noticed this year that both Whole Foods and Fred Meyers in the Portland, Oregon area were selling "Hatch" chiles. I tried them out. They could not compare.....
