what i learned over summer vacation (2012 edition)

#10 ~ i learned what heaven will be like, reading walt whitman while perched on the dry side of wy’east.

#9 ~ i learned the marketing team at portland youth philharmonic creates the most beautiful brochures.  seriously.

#8 ~ i learned (once again) that buying 24 pounds of sweet home ranch apricots is a perfect way to begin one’s summer.

#7 ~ i learned that crashing a baby shower can result in a long, long night of utter and complete debauchery.

#6 ~ i learned the only possible way for alpine lupin to smell any sweeter is to be humming mahler 1 while inhaling.

#5 ~ i learned that powerful feelings of determination and empowerment can be fostered by the simple act of painting a door bright red.

#4 ~ i learned there is a bird called a merlin – and witnessing it dart about in acrobatic attack mode atop east zigzag mountain at dusk inspires neck-craning awe.

#3 ~ i learned that following the cleveland indians play baseball is highly addictive.  at least through july.

#2 ~ i learned the entire history of movie-making has been leading up to one, perfectly crafted film: moonrise kingdom.

#1 ~ i learned absolutely nothing compares to the thrill of a federal postal carrier hand-delivering your official oregon symphony 2012/13 season ticket package.

    Yea! Beavy is back! I assume #11 would have been “Starships and Stupid Hoe are the most sick music videos of the past year”.
    Gotta give Nicki some love!

    Lovely! Maestro Rodent, it’s evident that the summer didn’t tarnish your silver tongue or dull your keen wit — heartfelt, never saccharine. :>)
