Hi there, I am a British-Canadian writer living in London and will be in Portland this June researching some essays on rewilding and alternative communities. I will be in Portland roughly from June 10-July 1. I would be happy to rent a room or to house-sit (and do any required chores in return) for some or all of my time there. If you know anyone who might be away and need someone to water plants, feed animals, etc... or if you know of or have a room or an empty house or apartment that could accommodate a quiet, middle-aged writer, please do get in touch. I would be ever so grateful. Thanks.
