Aside from palm trees, I hear tell that the country of Oregon is the land of cheese, hazelnuts and honey…the air is also redolent of essential oils, nut butters and alfalfa sprouts, the miasma wafts about everywhere.
Also, babies are clad in cloth diapers, and are happy all the time; parents wear comfortable shoes, i.e. Birkenstock’s and are thusly “chill” - marijuana is legal, but don’t revolt at the gas station, and pump your own fossil fuels, lest you wind up in the pokey! However, no suicide watch in jails! It’s quite possible one could get an end of life advocate while in custody, and go out rather painlessly.
Food is varied and delicious in the big city! Elsewhere, it’s good and extremely generous and plentiful… after eating and partaking liberally of the fruits of the vine, citizens are encouraged to (quite literally) EXPOSE themselves to ART. Google up the famous photograph of the mayor of Portland doing that very thing. A mere 45 years ago or so…
Totally poking fun in the best way - Oregon is a great state, where most of my friends live…can’t wait to go visit again. Damn Covid!!
