Catching Up

Sunday morning I flew home from EPICon in Portland, after a fun, but exhausting, conference. I've spent the last couple of days trying to recover, get some sleep, and catch up on my life.

My alter ego, Lyndi Lamont, had a new release out this weekend, Alliance: Clandestine Desire, so I had website updates and promo notices to do.

I've started looking through the approximately 125 photos I took in Portland. Some are of the cityscape as seen from the Doubletree Hotel. I took a lot at the Chinese Garden, too, but not many of the conference. I'm going to upload the pictures first chance I get, but here are a few of my favorites.

Our room faced west, so I was able to capture some sunset pics one night, but my favorite is the rainy night.

Sometimes I love to walk in the rain. It reminds me of my childhood when we got soaked and collected rainwater to wash our hair for a special treat. Rainy days are great for picture taking too.

I love rainy days, too. I grew up back East, in Pittsburgh, PA, which got a lot more rain than So Cal does. I remember summer evenings where my folks and I would sit on the front porch watching the thunderstorms until it finally got so cool we had to go back inside. I love the sound of rain and the smell of it, too. :)

The photo is so pretty. I can see the reflection of the sunset on the buildings. Glad you had a great trip. Congrats on the new release!

The pictures are great. My favorite is the same as yours - the rainy day. The orange glow on the street in the center reminds me of the way lights shine out of the houses and onto the 'snow' in my miniature Christmas village. It looks so cozy. Thanks for sharing... and congratulations on your new release! How exciting that must be!
