Io Portlandia! I’m a portlander now.

For over 25 years, I’ve been a resident of Washington State, beginning in the early 80’s when I moved to SW Washington for high school. However, I am now officially a resident of Oregon.

In Washington, I’ve lived in a lot of different places. Also, the last 25 years were not the only time that I lived in the state. However, this is the first time that I’ve lived in Oregon.

Here’s to a new year and a new life! As it’s going to be the Chinese New Year soon, congratulations and may we all be prosperous, now give me the red envelope. Cheers!

It’s also a strange thing because almost as long as I’ve had my website the footer has contained a notice that this domain and all e-mail address are in the State of Washington to warn about an early anti-spam state law. Not that it’s done any good, of course, but it’s a small thing that I’ll have to change that carries with it a surprising amount of significance and memory.
