I'm typing away on my phone here and can't possibly keep up, but I wanted to let y'all know that I'm having a great time in Seattle. While 14,000 people brave the AWP (and I'm beginning to think that it's de rigueur to complain about it), I was wandering the city, visiting quiet salmon runs, the Crittenden locks:
While the deluge hit Los Angeles, I walked under blue skies, ate lots of good comfort food and drank craft beer. And the Caregifted benefit?
Sensational! It was at the Chihuly boathouse, literally under a massive bridge. I have some awesome photos but will surely go blind if I continue posting, so I'll leave you with the one of the swimming pool -- the floor of which was covered in these glass sculptures!
Holy moley, right? The photo at the top of this post is one taken by my friend Cara, and I think it looks like I've been painted on the wall or something. Surreal stuff -- and I got to shake hands with the great Robert Pinsky, too.
I might have to make that my new header such was my awe!
I'll check back in tomorrow with more notes and pictures. My eyes and pecking finger are twisted --
