Laugh, chuckle all you want, I'm a damn transplant, yes. And coming to Portland I was excited about all the artistic opportunities that would present themselves. Yet, I look around everywhere and art communities are missing. Or am I not looking in the right direction?
I crave collaboration and poetry and painting and design and music with new people and I'm just not finding it. I don't know if it's the season or the economy or what, but I'm getting so fucking on edge about this, I can hardly handle it. Is it a private thing? Are people that pretenious that they don't come out of the woodwork?
Who knows, I might organize something myself, but for now I'd like to know where you creative souls live and dine and smoke. Anyone out there?
