Seattle under construction.
Those eyes of wonder and dejection…
While the gum wall draws the tourists (?), the more interesting thing is behind them… it’s almost a showcase of great street stuff. Every single time, something new and great to look at.
When people talk about losing the city they love, this is it for me. It is getting harder and harder to live in a city that is losing it’s heart, which in turn makes it harder to keep caring.
Missing in Seattle.
A quick lunch poem.
It took nine months, but I’ve completed every walk in the books, most with friends along for the stroll. If you live in Seattle, I can’t recommend this book enough.
After a breakfast with strangers and handful of flowers, it was a special delight to bump into this poetry stall at the Farmers Market.
We have finished “Seattle Stairway Walks”! The last walk was back to Solstice Park.
Almost finished with “Seattle Stairway Walks”! Today was yet another walk left in West Seattle, the Schmitz Preserve Park walk and a bit of Alki Beach.
Finally! I am back to walking and trying to finish the “Seattle Stairway Walks” Book. The walks that are left are all out in West Seattle, aka, “Japan”, aka, “The Edge of the Continent”
Only five or six miles from my house, it’s taken me twenty years to actually find and go to Kubota Gardens. What a shame. It is so beautiful.
