“Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.”
Pablo Picasso

Very glad the site is back up and seeing the familiar names in daily readings. Change is often abrupt, this was not one I wanted to adjust to a new normal.

When discussing events and patterns in history I often use Oregon in the story telling for a couple of reasons. First, It was not considered claimed territory by any European nation and significant British and United States interaction with Oregon begins in the early 1800's. Colonization pattern is a repeat of successful practices used on the east coast since the 1500's. The second reason is I have had the fortune of knowing multiple individuals who had personal memories of living in various parts of the state since the late 1800s to present times. Those stories may not always match with official history, but have often been confirmed by reading old newspapers.
