This year TEDx Portland was dedicated to building the bridge between notions that need and should live together. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Family/Business ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And many others
It often seems difficult to challenge the status quo and ask yourself and people around: Why do we do things the way we do? Can it be done differently? But without challenges there is no brilliance. Think about the things that you do in your business and career, do they speak to who you are? To who you want to become? You can be the person who BUILDS the bridge INSTEAD of burning it and create opportunities, inspire others and move the world. And who knows, maybe you’ll be the next speaker on the TEDx stage sharing the idea worth spreading? We sure hope so! // And if you didn’t get to see the event life, make sure to watch every one of the talks online - we promise, they’ll move you to spread good into the world. 🌍 // photo by @tedxportland // #tedxpdx#pdxevents#YW_events

Oh ya know, just taking pics of power lines like I did in High School! 😁
I had driven by this boat, settled into a sandbar on the Rouge River, many times. Always, I planned to stop to get a photograph or two, but for one reason or another, never did. Ten years go by and I know that it's around a bend in the road, just across the bridge. As I cross, I'm aware of it still there, settling into the mud, after all these years. And I finally stop.
Time has not been good to this wooden boat. The pilothouse has disintegrated, tumbling forward; everything had disintegrated really. The tides were easily identified by the vegetation growing in the dampness and it was a weak shell of the decrepit boat that it had been ten years before. It was now a rotting shadow of the mighty boat of its prime.
It was still mine. Still mine in the way it had worked it's way into my thoughts, into my heart. Still mine, as I had finally captured its shadow with my camera... #oldboat#woodenboat#derelictboat#decay#derelict#stuck#rougeriver#oregon#oregoncoast#southcoast#westcoast#myoregon#myview#rackandruin#us101#wanderthewest#seeoregon#traveloregon#wanderoregon#travels#travelingfool
31. Mary’s Peak & 4,160 weekends in 80 years.
On a beautiful weekend day, I try my best to get outside and take advantage of this incredible area and Earth I live on. Today was a quick hike up a snowy Mary’s Peak.
I try to reframe my perspective in different ways to increase my gratitude and, in turn, my happiness. One of the scales to reframe is time. 4,160 weekends in 80 years. That number puts time in perspective. It shows me the limited quantity of time in our lives. It makes me want to take advantage of my time. But, even more so, it makes me appreciate each and every day in this amazing journey of life. I do not want to take my time for granted. I know it is not unlimited. #RaysWay
It says a lot of my awkwardness that the best picture out of the lot was the one where I am looking away to tuck in my shirt.....tell ya what, it’s a good thing I work behind the camera 🙈🎥👍🏻
