 IMG_3862I started my day by pedaling the far reaches of Northwest Portland to Kelly Point Park, where the Willamette meets the Columbia. My route took me all through St. John’s, which has a wonderful collection of domestic architecture from the 1920’s through the 1960’s. The more recent stuff – not so good. The cloudy skies evaporated, the sun came out, and people flooded the streets. Portland is like Boston in that no own takes sunshine for granted.

I returned to the city and spent the afternoon getting social media tips from blogging entrepreneur Mike Riscica. In case I didn’t have enough exercise, I had a steep, steep climb up the hills to get to my warmshowers host high above the city. I spent the evening in spirited discussion with a group of 50-somthings and their 20-something children about tomorrow.

About paulefallon

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, theawkwardpose.com is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition. During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog, www.howwillwelivetomorrw.com, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.
