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?

Street Murals…finding the right canvas

Most of the quite obvious, even sometimes impressive wall/building murals in Portland are on the inner Eastside industrial area. Recently, I came across this one out in a depressed part of Portland. The mural is by Pablo Garcia. The location is on the side of a notorious Nude Bar, with some degree of traffic flow to appreciate the grand astronaut. I guess Pablo’s working the outer circuit of available canvases….

The backyard….

is a sanctuary of sorts most of the year. Now the roses, fuchsias, clematis and such are shrouded in snow. Still beautiful in its own way for sure.

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
