The facade of the building that I am about to step into has changed greatly in the past twenty years as have the stores contained within this strip mall. The original, 1979 facade, is something that has been permanently recorded to memory though. I first witnessed it in 1987, as a boy, and recall the siding was brown painted wood and the roofing and awnings were dark cedar shingles. Today the facade is hip and modern; a signal to the city that just because this is the suburbs it doesn’t mean we haven’t seen your culture.
For a long time I tried to fill the void with alcohol, an issue that would last until I left Portland. When alcohol no longer numbed the pain I turned to cars, and dumped all of my time, money, and efforts into the garage.

I’m the shy quiet type, a man of few words if you will, and for someone like me to receive the blow of such a loss left me speechless as if I had no voice.
