Hello! My name is Katie Boehnlein (pronounced “Bane-line”). My current home is Ashland, OR where I am a teacher, writer, and traveler. Here in my corner of the world, deer use crosswalks, bears leave scat on mailboxes, and ravens are our alarm clocks. You will find my writing inspired by my search for alivedness and wonder on every trail and alleyway.

Comments and suggestions are welcome. You can write to me through a comment on this blog or by email at: inthemidstblog [at] gmail [dot] com.

  1. Hello!

    What a lovely “about me” section. I was just reading over your beautiful blog to get some inspiration for mine before I leave.

    You have a birthday coming up!

    Okay. . .love you!

  2. Hello Katie –
    Thank you for your thoughtful responses to my blog. I don’t get a lot of feedback, so it was very fun to see that someone read it and found it interesting.

    You write beautifully and I look forward to reading more of your work. Thanks again.

    • Lynn,
      I am so glad to have found your blog too! Thank you for your comment. I’m looking forward to reading more of your thoughts and seeing your photos. It’s always great to find fellow Portlanders and Portland lovers out in this blog-o-sphere 🙂

      Take care,

  3. Hi Katie. You write beautifully, and I love the way you describe places with such delight and wonder. Thanks for visiting my book blog via Mink River. I have a main blog, which is much more personal than yours–lately I’ve been ranting about politics!–but I occasionally write about my love for the Northwest as well. Glad to have found you!

  4. My wife and I enjoyed meeting you and Jeff on the Erie Canalway Trail. We were the two seniors from Michigan on the yellow recumbent tandem the last week of September. I must say you have put together a rather impressive Blog. Keep it up and keep on pedaling.

    • Hi Fred and Judy! It was lovely meeting you both on the Erie Canalway Trail, and I hope your trip was enjoyable. Happy riding to you, and maybe we’ll see you out on another rail trail sometime soon 🙂
