I Think I Said That

Tuesday, November 14, 2017
The girls and I were listening to Talkin' World War III Blues on the way to school this morning.  We drive to school now, as we moved a little further SE into Milwaukie, a community we are loving.  The lyrics of this old Bob Dylan song go something like this:

Well, now time passed and now it seems
Everybody’s having them dreams
Everybody sees themselves
Walkin’ around with no one else
Half of the people can be part right all of the time
Some of the people can be all right part of the time
But all of the people can’t be all right all of the time
I think Abraham Lincoln said that
“I’ll let you be in my dreams if I can be in yours”
I said that

Bob Dylan Live in Quest, Toronto (1964)

Today I felt like being outdoors on this fine November morning, so I checked out a Cultural Pass to the The Portland Japanese Garden from The Ledding Library in Milwaukie, and was on my way.

It's been a decade since I've visited this place, and it is just as beautiful as my memory of it.  The first time I went, Sam was two years old, and I was wearing him on my back in an Ergo.  10 years later, I visited with my husband Adam, and Sam is now twelve years old and in the 7th grade.  A lot of years have passed by since 2007, but the trees are all still here, shedding their 2017 leaves, and have only grown more beautiful with time.  And I think a few of those koi are still kickin' around from ten years back, too.  Time stands still at the Portland Japanese Gardens, and I think I said that.
