What matters in the end?

"What he told us is that, in the end, only love matters. Success and fame and wealth and even health all fade in time, and in the end all you have is love. And love is what matters. I hope everyone in the world gets the chance to discover that in the way that I have. I love you, Alaina.

Cleaning my room out and old love letters, and pictures

I spent the evening going through my room. Even though I moved in over 2 years ago, I rarely spend many waking hours in my room and it looks like I may have just moved in with boxes and stuff stacked around.

I pulled a few boxes from the hallway into my room and started to unpack.  I found an old box with pictures and love letters from my 1st love/girlfriend.  It was fun to read a few of them and see pictures from high school, college, parties, studying in oz, and travelling around the world.

My senior year high school girlfriend – I used to write her a letter every sunday nite and mail it on monday since I would not see her till the next weekend.  She did as well and those were some of the letters I read.  Good memories…

A bunch of the pictures reminded me of some places I have visited and times I had.  More good memories. I forgot about many people I had met, places I have been, and things I did.   I should get all of these scanned and archived.  Is there a service that will do this for me?

Mika: Poorly Educated Logger

"HELSINKI, FINLAND – Fifty years ago, Finland was known for little more
than the wood pulp from its endless forests. A poverty-stricken land of
poorly educated loggers and farmers on the edge of the Arctic Circle,
few paid it any attention."

Clutter and Consumerism

This is not surprising.  I hope I don’t fall into the clutter and stuff trap…

To many observers, clutter reflects the mind-set of the modern
household — overburdened, disorganized and compulsive. To others,
clutter is a broader symbol of a ravenous culture dependent on easy
credit, piling up debt and consuming a lion’s share of the world’s
resources without considering the consequences.

"People’s homes are a reflection of their lives," says Los Angeles
psychologist and organizational consultant Peter Walsh. "It is no
accident that people have a huge weight problem in this country, and
clutter is the same thing. Homes are an orgy of consumption.

Back in Portland and the blog

Donovan and I got back late last nite from Seattle and the Adventure Travel World Summit.   Great stuff participating in it the past few days.  Our days were packed from 7 am to about 10 pm – full of interesting people, speakers sharing gr8 info and networking with folks that have similiar interests.

Also – not sure if you saw – we are quietly launching Portland Blog. Court is writing up a bunch of happy hour reviews and other random portland stuff.  Add it to your RSS reader – it’ll be a total portland resource b4 too long.
