Council Crest, 1925. At 1,071 feet Council Crest park in SW Portland has a 360 degree view. On a clear day you can see majestic mountains, vast stretches of land and rivers. Memorial Day in 1907 Council Crest Amusement Park opened. There was a Scenic Railway (roller coaster) and the Columbia River Water Log Ride, which encircled the park. After several seasons of failing revenues and the nation heading into a depression the park closed on Labor Day in 1929. Photo taken by Delano Photographics aerial, ca. 1925, courtesy Ken Hawkins.  

Instagram is a valuable tool because it makes you look at situations from an outside perspective. For example, while in Ecuador, I was very caught up on my own situation and how rough things were- how ugly, dirty, etc. But in looking at other people’s profiles that are in South America right now, and nothing seems dirty or sad, or rather not that it’s not sad but at least that they recognize the beauty, I think I would’ve thought about the situation differently and looked for things that were beautiful to others and then in turn noticed the beauty more readily, while I was down there. Instead of a year later, two years later, three years later when going through old photographs.

So much working, reading, thinking, living to do! A lifetime is not long enough.

Ella Fitzgerald, 1970s.

(via 50s60sand70s)

You have lost your reason and taken the wrong path. You have taken lies for truth, and hideousness for beauty. You would marvel if, owing to strange events of some sorts, frogs and lizards suddenly grew on apple and orange trees instead of fruit, or if roses began to smell like a sweating horse; so I marvel at you who exchange heaven for earth. I don’t want to understand you.
— Anton Chekhov
