goin’ out west to the best coast…

the sun is about to head back toward the sleepy side of town, as i wing my way towards the pacific northwest and take that sacred vacation to visit my hija extraordinaire and spin some in old haunts on the westside: olympia, portland, and astoria. watching akira on the plane and in the airport on my way there and here – yeah iphone. ending the week with a trip to bagby hot springs on the slopes of mt. hood where she and me wanderd back in the misdst of a forest fire some four years ago, delirious from hot hot water, no breakfast, and a lack of coffee…bluto…popeye…bluto…popeye. fish n chips at the bowpicker, and then putting my toes in the cold cold pacific to wash away the work of the sun’s seasons of growing and waning these last three years. old school pizza in oly after pallas’ graduation from middle school on the solstice… i arrive on saturday to skating at skateland with my iphone playing some sweet music i just synced…hoping to get a new one when they drop later next week.  speaking of music, here is the summer solstice mix…much of which didn’t end up on my iphone…ah well i can crank it up while i wander up and down the five.
