Saturday, March 20, 2010

Today, the sun came out.  The patio was reclaimed for spring, and we celebrated with our much-anticipated morning coffee outside.  This is what I've been waiting for all winter long.  Thankful is an understatement.

The sun didn't end there, neither did the day, so neither will my pictures.
My apartment is just a few blocks from Seattle City Center.  Although at times it can be very touristy, in the off-season on sunny days it is a veritable playground for locals.  Brian and I took a mid-afternoon walk to that area.

I love the way this city responds to the sun.  People come out in droves to revel in the warmth and excitement of being able to be outside.  There's a different level of appreciation here...I can see it in the faces.  Everywhere I look, there is someone with their eyes closed, face lifted to the sun, simply experiencing and breathing in the moment.  I never knew other people did things like that, too.

And then there are the colors, and the everyday art, and the sculpture that I always forget to notice.

And that, in a nutshell, is what I'm thankful for today.


  1. The picture of the little girl is dynamite. You captured her fun, plus the great landscape--excellent work.

  2. Yes, dynamite photos. That is the right word. Sometimes your photos really reach out and grab me. And, I am not such a visually-oriented person, so that is saying a lot. Such talent to invoke emotion in the viewer.
