Live From Portland


This is me right now, seven and a half hours into my day and still at the Portland airport. Two more hours and then I can board my one hour flight to Medford where I will rent a car and drive to one of my stores where my work day will officially begin. Nevermind that I have been doing reports, sending emails, and making phone calls and stuff at the airport. And blogging. And reading Cosmo. And eating a $13 sandwich.


Portland isn't bad if you just have to be stuck in an airport. It has been voted the number one airport 4 years in a row according to the signs everywhere. What I like about it is that even though it's an airport, it still has kind of a hippie vibe. There are always live performers here. In the last four hours I've watched someone play a xylophone, a piano, and a harp.


One time I saw a barefoot woman with dreadlocks playing the guitar and singing here, but I'm pretty sure she was just a barefoot woman with dreadlocks playing the guitar and singing and not really part of the program, but I watched her with awe and loved her.

I wish she were here today instead of this harp lady.
