People go through a lot. They are constantly dealing with the highs and lows of life. Some deal with it better than others, some hide those emotions then let them uproar, and some act as if those emotions don't exist.
Saren has been through more in this life than most people I know. The way she weaves in and out of the hard times has always impressed me. She is honest and lets those moment take charge, but comes back. She comes back more than she was before. Having learned that everything that has happened has shaped her into more of the pillar that she is in some of our lives. That's the thing that sticks out about Saren, for all us that know her well. She is strong, stronger than most people I know. She's a badass and it shows in the way she lives life.
Currently, in Portland, OR with her top-notch husband and affable pup. She is the drummer of an incredible two piece band called Kool Stuff Katie.
Cathedral Park is a sanctuary in North Portland. It's that place where the city ends and nature starts to take over again. All encompassed by the raw iron that stretches the length of the river. Some days are overcast and some days the light is perfect. It's grand and dismal. Which is why I think Saren, and all of us love this place so much. The parallels of this place and this human are undeniable; valiant and poised.
