Today, I had errands to run. Doctor appointment, to picking up coffee, to getting keys made. Coming back from the latter, I enjoyed the poetry of this corner. I hope I was able to capture it. This juxtaposition of color, gray sky, slow-moving traffic trickling through the intersection, and the leased building. Then, I turn around and there’s a Ballroom I visited last year, one of the event spaces in Portland. Then, there is this beautiful architecture on the Volunteers of America building. So, enjoy, as I did.

All the World’s a Stage

All the World’s a Stage

All the world’s a stage. This keeps coming up for me. When I read as a lecture during Catholic mass, but especially when I help put on an event. Each space has its directors, its producers, its actors who all play a pivotal role. Each space has its problems and everyone has to pivot. And, the thought has occurred to me – everyone should, yes, I daresay should, take some acting classes in their formative years so they can truly learn the ins and outs of “all the world’s a stage.”
