I spy joy in Portland, Oregon

In late March of 2011 the Wall Street Journal released a study finding Portland, Oregon, to be the the 2nd most miserable city in the U.S.

I have found much evidence to the contrary. In fact, looking at photos I’ve taken in recent years for ISpyJoy.com and LicensePlateWisdom.com as well as images of the joy-spreading work of The Joy Team, it seems the Portland-Vancouver metro area is overflowing with joy, love and wisdom.

This video is a just a sampling of those images–all taken in the Portland / Vancouver metro area.

City of Roses, you are also the City of Joy, Love and Wisdom.

Hmm Most Miserable? I think the rain doesn’t help- that is the only draw back. I have lived in Portland all my life and there is so many unique and amazing things about Portland- that make PDX so unique 🙂

Not been to your site in a long time, this morning, desperately needing some good news, I clicked…..and found this little video, which is sweet and wonderful and I thank you for pointing out the goodness – not just in Portland, but everywhere.
