"Reality, in fact, is usually something you could not have guessed. That is one of the reasons I believe Christianity. It is a religion you could not have guessed. If it offered us just the kind of universe we had always expected, I should feel we were making it up. But, in fact, it is not the sort of thing anyone would have made up. It has just that queer twist about it that real things have. So let us leave behind all these boys' philosophies--these over simple answers. The problem is not simple and the answer is not going to be simple either."

Portland... and my Job.

Over the last couple months I've taken some pictures on my cell phone around Portland, and at my job... which is no longer my job as of today.

Hawthorne Bridge. I walk across here every morning.

These signs are posted on both ends of the bridge. Maybe the daffodil helps?

Hawthorne in the evening.
Wells Fargo Center: Tallest building in Portland at 546 ft. Not very impressive...

Second Tallest Bulding: US Bancorp Tower or "Big Pink"
Pioneer Courthouse Square: A good place to see strange people...
If I ever become a homeless bum... this is what I'd do. Some of these guys are pretty cool.
A park near my office. I was once accosted by a police officer in this park.... 
A crane. Cranes are awesome.
This is my office building: World Trade Center Building 3.
This is my desk. Exciting....... but it I do have a cool desktop picture. And big screens.
Even bigger screens. These monitors display software system I've worked on developing.
Skybridge between the WTC buildings. On the way to Starbucks...
A warehouse roof with solar panel installation.
We installed a weather monitoring station on the same roof.

Downtown Chipotle.
And finally... Scott looking inordinately excited about his cup of water.
