I'm the doctor my mother wanted me to marry. Even after 14 years in Portland, I love the rain. It keeps everything green and flowering. After living in the desert for 16 years, I can't get enough. One of my favorite things to do is walk around the city in spring or summer and just look at the flowers. I love that I can leave my car parked over the weekend and walk, bike or use the MAX to go where I want to go.
