the OR

portland, oregon: powells, bohemian intellectuals, the best latte and v. v. green. my dad and i rented bicycles today and biked a couple miles all along the river. fantastic! it smelled so much like britain-it smelled like warm green and yellows and light browns of weeds and wheat fields. we’ve been eating delicious meals and feeling v. content and progressive.


last summer i met one of my dad’s friends in hangzhou, china named ya lei. he was so cool, ive been thinking about him a lot lately. he was chinese and was embarassed to speak much english with me, yet he dreamed of visiting new york city. he loved jim jarmush and almodovar films, roberto bolano was his hero, and he was working on a project translating leonard cohen songs from english to chinese. cool huh?
