Native Oregonian, one year ago I returned to live in Portland with my husband. Our children remained in CA. Avid hiker, I climbed Half DOme twice and other Sierra Nevada spots. Very eager to take advantage of statewide venues.

Thanks for the message, Leslie. I enjoyed meeting you and hope to see you on the trails again soon.
I notice you're interested in Catholic spirituality and am curious if you've ever read author Flannery O'Connor. She was a Southern author who wrote unusual, dark stories with strong Catholic underpinnings. Much of her work was short stories, highly acclaimed in her lifetime and even now . O'Connor died of lupus in 1964 at the age of 39. She never married.
