Recently, Alyssa visited Portland, and we made a special trip to the International Rose Test Garden. Thousands and thousands of roses are in bloom all at once. It’s absolutely intoxicating and brings me back by scent to a special time in my life. It may be cllche, but there is something I adore about roses. Their elegance, the thorns, the soft velvet of their petals. My favorites are red or yellow.
The rose below was especially striking due to the black edges.
I want to know who is running for president.
I want to know where they stand on the issues.
I want to know who are the candidates that are not republican or democrat.
I want the media to actually cover these other candidates.
Here is the best list of candidates I could find.Â (I found a more extensive list, but the candidates did not all have complete bios.Â It did list their party affiliation–did you know there are some crazy parties out there?Â Check out the United Fascist party or the Light party.)
took some photos of Chris and Heidi’s baby Emma…
Here is the latest roll of film I had developed. I have pictures from March through August…

A friend of mine had a heart and took home a preganant stray cat.
It had six gorgeous kittens.
Please consider adopting one.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the water filter project.Â We raised the funds to ship the filters to Ethiopia.
