Times change. What's popular changes. The mode of the day changes.

My grandfather wore a suit and tie, with a vest every day. My grandmother always wore an apron. The last time I had a tie on was five years ago and I can't remember the last time I saw a woman in an apron, especially the bib style aprons my grandmother wore.

Today, reading on dead trees has been supplanted by reading on computer screens, radio has been replaced by Spotify and Pandora, TV is being replaced by Netflix and YouTube.

Like is often said, there's nothing so constant as change. That's the way it is, that's the way it has always been. Think of the stores that used to be common that no longer exist.

You can bemoan the passing of another store, maybe it was even one of your favorites. But you can be sure it wasn't any longer the favorite of the many.

My Portland childhood. Getting on Rosie, which morphed into Trimet,and heading downtown. First stop the beloved Cal's Books And Wares, The Green Dolphin Book Store across from Dan And Louis Oyster Bar the mystical Cameron's. Just the smell of the place would make me swoon. Nothing like the scent of old books and paper. Portland will no longer have any Haunts, just ghosts.

Just saw from The Hollywood Theater that there is a Kickstarter campaign to save Camerons.
