Ooo boy…. On a whim, I tried watching A Simple Favor starring Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick (streaming on Prime or Hulu), and man, that ending really and truly sucked. But more than that, it only served to underscore just how shockingly good Barry is (HBO series).

Both are dark comedies with thriller elements, but every episode of Barry feels like a work of art. A Simple Favor is nothing more than a botched popcorn flick.

To Bill Hader, Sarah Goldberg, and Alec Berg, I say: well done! The quality of your work puts many high-profile Hollywood films to shame.

All the places a car can’t go make the Pearl District a joy to walk. I’m always on the lookout for those hidden paths and courtyards when out for a stroll.

I can’t believe I captured this image. It looks like something straight out of a travel brochure.

Really, the credit goes to Silver Falls State Park though—one of the most beautiful places I’ve visited yet in Oregon. I can’t wait to go back in the spring when the volume of water going over the falls will no doubt be much greater!

We’re all told we need to say No to the things in life that aren’t all that important or meaningful to us in order to say Yes to that which truly matters. But what if you HAVE NO CLUE what is most meaningful to you? What if you are in the middle of a creative slump, an “existential crisis,” or just a transition to a new season of life? Maybe there’s room to give yourself permission to say Yes to that slump, that crisis. Make space for your indecisiveness. Try a little bit of this, a little bit of that. See what sticks. See what resonates. I’m going through this process right now!

Season 3, Episode 2

Essential Life with Jared is a vlog series all about Portland, the Pacific Northwest, and the philosophy of essentialism. It’s about finding your own way and never walking somebody else’s path. It’s about living a life that’s most meaningful to you.

Apparently this is the face I make when I’m out scouting for good portrait locations and I decide to take a selfie with a “model pose” for full effect. 🤓😝

So you can take the Portland Aerial Tram up to the OSHU complex near Stonehenge radio tower, which I knew, but what I didn’t know is you can veer right as soon as you get off the tram and walk along an AMAZING patio area that overlooks the whole frickin’ Willamette Valley/Portland area—cafe tables and all.

Oh I’m coming back up here, no doubt about it!
