Joan Didion & Magical Thinking – Nothing and Everything to do with Living in Bend Oregon

Joan Didion & Magical Thinking – Nothing and Everything to do with Living in Bend Oregon

No. This one’s not about anything in Bend in particular. Yes. There will be more posts like this over the course of the future. In the following paragraphs, maybe I’ll mention a bookshop or two in town where you can go and search for Joan Didion’s The Year of Magical Thinking. Or maybe not. Either way, I’m going to write a few words about Joan Didion, and a few about how little time we have here. In Bend, but more…

Spring in Bend Oregon – The Green Flash

Spring in Bend Oregon – The Green Flash

What’s Spring in Bend Oregon like? Well, it depends on who you ask and who’s asking. I know we’ve written and photographed quite a bit about snow and winter and more snow in Bend these past few months. There’s the mini spring skiing post we did. There’s the “what’s winter in Bend like” post or the Central Oregon spring mountain biking post. There’s also the fact that the majority of our Instagram feed features shots of folks enjoying winter.

Oregon Spring Skiing, Snowboarding, and Sun

Oregon Spring Skiing, Snowboarding, and Sun

Instead I’ll say: I love snow and winter so goddamn much and this past winter in Bend has been like the best thing ever and, thankfully, it ain’t over yet.

Moving to Bend? Tell Us What You Want to Know About Central Oregon Living.

Here at the Eternal Beginner’s Guide to Bend, we decided it was about time we gave you an update, or at least another opinion or two, about Central Oregon living. Because this can and does change on the regular, we’ve also decided to deliver it to you as it comes, in fits and spurts (multiple, smaller blog posts and pages), rather than just one static statement. Hm, we’ll start with that as a through-thread: living in Bend is not a statement….
