Revenge of the Three Little Pigs: A visit to the set of 'Grimm', Part 1
When I'm traveling alone I tend to fixate on strangers, and my recent trip to Portland was no exception. As I rode the TriMet MAX light rail from the airport into the city, a collection of individuals caught my attention, as they drifted on and off through the sliding doors like ghosts - Rose McGowan lookalike in dreadlocks and cut-off denim shorts; stocky kid in his early 20s, black baseball cap, sullenly mumbling into his cell phone about a girl; tattered, strung-out homeless man with long, dirty hair and full beard, slouching from one of the handholds.
I couldn't help but wonder who these people were during my 45-minute stretch on the car, the vivid landscape of the Willamette Valley rolling by; how "Rose" could look so content and so sad all at once, a slight smile perennially curling at the corners of her mouth; why the stocky kid in the black cap found it necessary to hide his face while he spoke; when the homeless man had become homeless, and why, and how, and if there was anyone left out there who cared enough for him to worry where he was - a mother or father or sister in tears, gripping phones and driving the gray Portland streets day after day, hoping to spot him on a street corner, or glimpse his ragged form drooping in an alleyway.
