I need to start off with how much I adore Portland, the people, the sense of community and all of the positive (grounded) energy that flows through this city. Lindsay and I went to the Colombian Gorge River today and had the opportunity to explore the Cascade Mountains, Multnomah Falls, Lake Oswego, and learned a vast amount Lewis and Clark (the settlers of the west). Kinda weird we just took land from the Native Americans - seems very savage and made me feel a little sad and embarrassed for whatever reason. Pics below if the amazing scenery - I know, solid transition to beauty, right?
Greg writes for the Tribune and sincerely knows how to create a story. As someone who interviews people frequently, he was spot on and it was kinda refreshing to be interviewed than to interview. We scheduled a 10-15 minute call, but once the conversation got going, it ended up being a 40 + minutes. We talked about everything and he's going to be one successful dude. Mad love and mad props for Greg to reach out and for us to connect on a deeper level! Looking forward to seeing what he took from our convo and putting in print and online via one of the most iconic media outlets in Chicago.
Lindsay and I haven't seen them in a while and it was so great to catch up, I have a feeling we will be back in the Pacific Northwest sooner than we think, Charlos, so be on the lookout for the Emo's!
Portland, you were great to us and I hope we were great to you.
