Current Loves, October 2013

This has been one of the driest Octobers ever in Portland, allowing for a perfect fall. Here are some of my current loves this month.



  • The view of Mt. Jefferson from the Jefferson Park campsite (above)
  • NW, Zadie Smith’s latest novel
  • Wyatt Sassman showcasing his guitar skills via Instagram
  • Lucky Strike’s green bean stir fry and noodle bowl
  • Every song on Neko Case’s latest album (start here)
  • Julian Barnes’ The Sense of an Ending
  • Morning bouldering at The Circuit
  • Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity
  • The pale ale at Cascade Locks’ Thunder Island Brewing Company
  • Mt. Tabor in the fog
