I write songs for a living & travel far and wide as a consequence - I know what it's like to be very far from home & I know a heartless hotel from a home. I sure can pack a suitcase.
When I am not on the road, I am in my peaceful home in Portland, Oregon. It's a farm house that was built in 1890, and has all the quirks and charms you could imagine for a home of it's age. I've been told it feels like walking into the past - old things, no tv, and a furry cat to pet.
As a host, I can provide a tea cupboard full to the brim. I am happy to tell you about my favorite restaurants and shops around the neighborhood & in greater Portland. You'd be a good fit if you are looking for beautifully crafted locally made items, vintage shops, and if you love eating amazing food.
If you came to stay:
You could find a book by Richard Brautigan or Steinbeck on the shelves.
You could sit on the porch & watch cyclists ride by.
You could cook things in a beautiful kitchen while listening to NPR.
You could walk to groceries, shops, restaurants & bars & parks!
You could sit by the wood stove if it's cold outside.
