People say it's depressing on days like this. Depressing to live in Portland. I disagree; these days are just days of more realistic reflection, without the sun to provide some artificial boost in spirits. It's these days where I think we can all learn what really matters and how we can improve ourselves in a real way.
The air on a day like this is full of life; it's moist and rich, and it feels well to breathe it in. This is a major part of why I still live here.
