Full moon dance night and the neon cross that looms over our house in North Portland

I started working on this post yesterday… but I got distracted by a boy with crossword puzzles and a trip to Pause for a black bean burger and Green Flash Ale.

But, here I am…. up super early because I slacked around to play with a word puzzle and listen to records with Paul and worked on writing a song about our first night together. We had our Full Moon Night the other night where we listened to records and danced and we sort of had a second one last night. But the night before we took some photos of the moon because it looked so rad.

Outside my front door and across the street is a soundwall. On the other side of the soundwall is the freeway onramp to I-5 south. On the other side of the onramp is the Freeway… which sounds a lot like the ocean. It has sort of become white noice after so many years of living here. On the other side of the freeway is a huge church with a giant neon cross. it wasn’t here when I moved in. I have no idea when they turned it on or how much it costs to illuminate the neighborhood. If you sit on our porch you don’t even see the church it is attached to. There is just this floating neon cross above the soundwall.

By day it looks like this:

ugly soundwall.

ugly soundwall.

by night it looks like this:

not as ugly by night

not as ugly by night

It is just amusing that we were celebrating love and the moon and there is this giant cross staring across the free way at us.

Ok, I have coffee to drink and roast and  few orders to pack and I have to search for my camera battery charger or else buy a new one before I leave. I need to pack the piles of stuff sitting around me including snacks, zines, buttons, and the usual clothes and such. I hope it all fits in my panniers I need to swing by the post office and puck up a burrito. I wonder if I should bring my tent? I wonder how different the weather in Seattle is? I guess I’ll find out. Marc andI should get some great interviews for our podcast.
