They were all over the place during that trip to Portland, OR — talkative pets! I was surrounded by them at pet-friendly restaurants (yes, dogs allowed in some) and just about everywhere I'd walk or hang out. Friendly Portland = Friendly Pets.

I was browsing downtown the other day when I ALMOST passed a young gal, perched on the retaining wall bordering Pioneer Square Park. I say 'almost' passed, because her big ‘ole HUUUGE drooling husky wouldn’t let me pass by without transmitting a very loud message:

I was attending the Willamette Writers Conference in Portland, OR, and met with a few clients in person. Whenever I hang out with friends, hostesses and coordinators, it’s fairly routine for me to relay messages from their pets who usually rush toward me, first thing, insisting that I pass on a few thoughts to their beloved owners.

So interesting, that yesterday Jaene (my project manager) alerted me to the item I posted on my Facebook page, the photo of a crash victim’s spirit leaving the body. Fifteen years ago, she and I stood together on our rooftop in Manhattan the morning of 9/11, and watched with horror from several blocks away as WTC2 fell.

I met Veronica in 2012 when I was featured on the local news to announce an upcoming intuition workshop I was to present at a nearby college. I arrived early for the interview, making sure I’d be at the right location on the campus. I was amazed as I watched this stunning young gal coming up the walkway, lugging a monstrous camcorder on her petite frame. Her boss was a hefty fellow who led the way, trailing a few feet ahead of her. He began the interview with opening questions, Veronica shooting the footage, and then she and I did a walk-and-talk while he manned the camera.
