A Quiet Little Corner Booth in Back of the Virginia Cafe

Caught up with old friend Steve Fuller last night and sat in the back of the Virginia Cafe in downtown Portland and got to the bottom of things. It's good when you've know someone for over twenty years and even though you haven't seen them in a while you can sit right down and pick up the conversation where ya left off. Friendship over time, there's nothing like it.
And Steve's still got it, that's for sure. We laughed, of course, about our kids and our jobs and the strange places we find ourselves in at middle age, but also, a new profound sense of what it will mean to move into the next stage of life.
Portland was beautiful that night. Quiet and still. Lights in the shadows. Chilled air. Nobody around. Everything you'd ever want a hometown city to be. Thanks for a great trip home, everyone. Peace.
