Yesterday I gave notice at my day job. I’ve been flipping books there for seven years and I have a lot of great memories and I now know far more about the book industry than I really wanted to. The real question is what do I do with myself now?
One of the things about living here in Little Bay Root is that all of the cool kids are crafty. Everybody seems to knit or make bike frames by hand or run a food cart specializing in artisan chicken with waffles. Sometimes I think that every failed creative in California lives here in Portland now. There are more over-educated baristas in this town than you can shake a stick at.
