grassroots

john j's earlier than intended morning calls cracking up the portland BVS house, checking things off the to-do list, tillamook cheddar, brother ogle's start-up plans, chelsea's irrepressible optimism and bubbling over giggles, heather's matter-of-factness and genuine interest in everyone around her, ben's willingness to try to turn failure into something else, jon's steady presence and off-color jokes, beth's persistence and lists and ability to make things happen, shoulder rubs, homemade chicken pot pie, affirmations, group hugs, and this Portland BVS Community House doing things so thoroughly and with such enthusiasm that my job is (almost) completely irrelevant.
