sacrificed his body to the Sound,
Engulfed whole, skin and all
Giving tithe to mother earth’s soft edges

When I was little, my dad got a job with United Airlines & the family moved to Seattle. While our dream house was being built we stayed in a small house from the early 1900s. It was dark with wood up the walls & carpet everywhere. There was a window in my bedroom that looked right into the kitchen. When I wanted a snack I would run into my room, open the cubby door and ask “one snack please” to which my mom would hand me food through the window. In that same room, I kept a Tiffany Lamp on my bedside. One night, in the light of the lamp, my mom talked about taking a ride in a hot air balloon. My imagination took off with the idea & played in the colors of the lamp. In the dining room of that house, my mom & I often played board games, one of the few things that weren’t packed away. Once we played ‘Spill the Beans’, a game of balancing plastic beans on top of a rocking cauldron, eventually it tips, spilling all the beans. After one particular game, the pot dumped the beans off the table & onto the carpeted floor. I still remember the feeling of crawling around on the floor scavenging for every last bean.
It was there that I fell in love with Seattle. We often took trips to the city & would travel up the Space Needle; we would look out at the city below & stick our hands out past the cable barrier to feel the rush of wind. At the Market, we purchased the most beautiful fresh flower bouquets. We rode on Ferries through the Puget Sound & watched for jellyfish while pointing out the seabirds. Six months into building the house, the nation fell victim to its worst terror attack. My dad, along with countless new hires, were laid off and we found ourselves back in Oklahoma.
In May, I returned to the city that captured my heart. I went to the public market to get bread; drove through the city with faint & fond memories; rode the Ferry; And visited the Space Needle. While I was there it was under major renovation, the dining cafe was gone & the cable barrier had been replaced by panes of glass. The day was so clear I could see Mt Rainier, guardian to the city. In the reflection of the glass I could see the needle smiling down on me & its city. Love you Seattle

An essential aspect of creativity is not being afraid to fail. ~Edwin Land (inventor of Polaroid)
Sadly, today, with powerful computers, AI, the internet, and everything science has at its collective fingertips, no one seems to be able to make ANYthing nearly as good as what Polaroid gave us 50+ years ago! 😩

Spent ”too much” time playing in the snow and got myself mega sick, but I’m not even mad about it
A gem hidden in Seattle is the @livingcomputers Museum. Home to both the past and he future of computer technology. If you visit, be sure to visit upstairs where you can even interact with a collection of the old computers.
