How to Find the Best Physical Therapists in Bend, OR. Because Shit Happens.

How to Find the Best Physical Therapists in Bend, OR. Because Shit Happens.

Hey. It’s been a minute. But the reason I’m back with a brand new blog post is a damn good one. It’s a magical new PT joint in Bend, Oregon called Mandon Welch Physical Therapy and Sports Performance. Yes, there is a multitude of competent, skilled, and experienced physical therapists in Bend, OR. But within this plethora there exists a vast range of styles, techniques, modalities, and ways of approaching the human body. None of them, arguably, better than the other….

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…

Scoutpost Is The Best Food Cart In Bend Oregon. Hands Down.

Scoutpost Is The Best Food Cart In Bend Oregon. Hands Down.

Consider this post the first of several about food carts in Bend Oregon. Why? Because there are a number of food carts in Bend that are slaying it right now. Scoutpost just happens to be slaying it the hardest. Like, this food cart next to Spoken Moto throws backside rodeos over the Bend food cart scene. (No offense other Bend food carts, I know you’re hustling and make good shit; I just gotta call it like I experience it.). Only instead of…

Bend Politics – Knute Buehler Town Hall

The first page in our Bend Politics section offers a *view* on the most recent Knute Buehler town hall. Enjoy. Bend Politics And Knute Buehler, Tally-Ho!

Bend is Not NYC is Not Bend: A (Beginner’s) Dialogue on Central Oregon Culture

Bend is Not NYC is Not Bend: A (Beginner’s) Dialogue on Central Oregon Culture

Oh hey. Know what? Sometimes Irene and I collaborate on these (e)BGTB posts. Other times we zoom in for a more individualized perspective. This post here offers my individual take on Central Oregon culture. It’s probably different than your take, or anyone else’s. And that’s ok, great even. Whatever this post is or isn’t for you, it’s been thought about deeply and written out with respect, accountability, and inclusion in mind. And so, to begin… I’ll never forget that people are more important…

My Wheels

My Wheels

I left LA last night around 7 p.m. My dad is driving, at the moment. Betty is chewing on her rope toy. Dex and Dash are spooning in their crate (they’re cats, by the way). And I am looking at my keychain. It’s very bare. Just one key: for my beach cruiser lock. I am in the in between. No house keys, no car keys (well, except for the Penske truck) and everything I own is cruising up the freeway…

I Am From Junction City, Oregon

I Am From Junction City, Oregon

If we met on the street, you’d probably assume I’m a city-dweller. And you’d be right. Over the last 20 years, I’ve lived in Seattle, New York City, and currently, in Los Angeles. I still feel like a country girl, but on the surface, I look the part of urban denizen — it might be my clothes, or my librarian glasses, or the way I talk…who knows?The truth is, I grew up in a tiny town in Oregon, but I…
