I recently finished a collection of Angela Carter's short stories and completely fell in love. She is an amazing writer who creates strange, creepy, incredibly atmospheric and unique universes. I never wanted this book to end.
I am now currently reading the short stories of Jorge Louis Borges, and it's the perfect book to follow Angela Carter. His style is a bit harder to explain, but I love it so far. What an intelligent man.
After Borges I plan to read J.K. Rowling's first adult novel.
Today the boys and I took the train downtown
Chinatown! Granted, Portland doesn't have a proper Chinatown like NYC or San Francisco, but it's still nice to have at least a few blocks.
Portland has a very high homeless population. There is a little section of space right outside of Chinatown that is blocked off for people without homes. A lot of sleeping bags, tents, grills. There are colorfully decorated doors creating a wall of this little community.
Here, have a photo of my face. This is as large as I will allow it to be
Have a great week!
