the stonemason…

“The wisdom of the journeyman is to work one day at a time and he always said that any job even if it took years was made up out of a day’s work. Nothing more. Nothing less. That was hard for me to learn. I always wanted to be finished.

In the concept of a day’s work is a pace and wholeness. To make the world. To make it again and again. To make it in the very maelstrom of its undoing.” Cormac McCarthy, The Stonemason

Brrrr….

Winter seems to be holding on here in Portland (Oregon). Not harsh by other standards by far, but still for here it is a bit colder than usual. Another bout possible tonight or will we dodge it?

Portland Beer Brewing History

You may or may not know that Portland fancies itself quite the micro brew epicenter in the U.S. And, rightfully so. I prefer a regular Lager beer, ice cold, but there are so many beer themes available in this town.

So, I came across a little beer making history for Portland while checking out the Lone Fir Cemetery the other day. I came upon a fenced off mausoleum with apparent damage and saw a sign explaining the site.
