In the alleyway near one of the rear entrances to Portland High School, you find "The Ascent" by artist Thomas K. Kennedy commissioned by the school in 1991. In all the times I've passed it, I've been alone. It's not located in the most viewable location. Of course, days when school is in session I'm sure many teens pass it. I hope the symbolism is captured by them. I still need assistance in 'my' ascent. I think we all do, regardless of age, in our ongoing life learning. If this rain stops, I'll be ascending a ladder to continue painting the garage. What's on your docket for this fall Saturday?
