these buds were shot on my iphone the first day of our trip, in a sunny community garden. it's been nonstop rays since then, really, seattle's been full of color and sun and some of the most warm, outgoing city folk i've ever met. i lose track of the amount of times i get stopped on the street with a compliment about my hair or outfit (yesterday, six separate seattle strangers were informed with a happy skip that the dress they were complimenting was made by me. this only added to their, and my, glee).
but! all streaks must end. today we woke up to a washed wall of gray cloud cover, and my mood was instantly affected. i would assume seattilites have built up an immunity to this sort of weather, but i'm interested to see if loss of sun is reflected in the demeanor of the city. if i could deal with the rain, i could see living here.
but not driving here, man. WHAT IS UP WITH Y'ALL AND THE ROAD RAGE. it is instantaneous and overpowering. there's an alien living in the chest of each citizen of this fair city, it comes screaming out through every orifice the nanosecond another driver stops to let a passenger out or slows to make a turn. it is so foreign, really the only response is laughter. in fact... it's entertaining.
seattle! can you do no wrong?
