the nicest thing about living close to places like the ocean and the gorge is that i never feel like i have to make each visit "count". i can just enjoy my visit, in whatever way i want to enjoy it. even with that, it's sometimes still easy to focus so much on trying to capture the big things, that i forget to notice the small things. happily, last time, i remembered. (i am pretty sure i had never noticed the portland sign before.)
big things or small things, we all see things differently. that's why it's so much fun to see your world through your eyes.
