Tuesday - or as I call it -- "Warm Day"

so, did the walk home on Tuesday evening. i had done some walking during lunch and boy was it a wonderful day. the sun was shining and it was warm and even the planters out front of our building began to sprout. it reminded me of last year when we had 4-5 weeks of dry weather in feb. i decided to walk down and accross the hawthorne bridge to the esplanade. i didn't get out as early as i wanted, so by the time i was on the esplanade, it was getting dark. i did get some good photos though and will post at the end. the esplanade was crowded, but as i walked and it got darker, the crowds thinned. at the point where you walk on the water (floating part) it was empty. spooky with the twilight.
now on the east side, i ventured up williams instead of vancouver. this led me past some wonderful buildings that i just want to covet. i think the house of sound building and market at vancouver and shaver (or there abouts) would be the shit for a market and venture. i walked by the new lompoc and it was crowded - almost overly crowded. way to go peeps. then i came upon an industrial building that had more wrought iron around it's window than a bronx house - then i saw the company name - Scientific Research Inc.. what the hell? what are they doing in there behind all that security steel? in north portland no less.
good walk - i was schweaty and felt good. btw - i've lost about 7lbs since jan 2.

oh and here's a nugget for thursday - instead of asking what jesus would do - ask yourself this?

Hello,

This is a newsletter, of sorts, announcing, among other things, the addition of two new projects to my site:
www.39forks.com
(see attachment showing the way to the project fork.)

The first new project is "totems." For this project, I invite you to buy a (cheap) 2by4, and create a totem for yourself to keep, give away as a gift, take to the city and place for a gift to the world or watch people pass it by and see their reaction to it, or do the same out in nature somewhere. A more involved description of this project is on the site. I plan to make several of these, and will put them on the site as I complete them.

The second new project is a 10 mile urban hike, which will take place on Saturday, Feb. 4 at 11 am, rain or shine. Meet me on the corner of NW 20th and Raleigh in NW Portland, and together we'll hike around a single city block (which offers nice views, but will offer even nicer introspection) 30 times, and document the journey with a few photos, and also in a way that we come up with while walking. Again, a more involved description of this site and its inspiration is on www.39forks.com.

Please pass this email on to anyone who you think might be interested.

Lastly, I am still accepting submissions for the other projects on the site. (The horse project continues to grow in popularity and I will continue to place horses around town myself.) There are also some suggestions for projects in the ideas fork, and you are also still free to submit lists to me for the lists fork. I also maintain a blog which is located in the last fork in the second row.

Thanks for participating, visiting my site, and simply being good people. I appreciate your support,

Sincerely,
scott wayne indiana
