One thing I like about Seattle is that it’s a colorful place full of interesting people and bustling with activity. Even more so post-SCOTUS marriage ruling. In the Capitol Hill area, the crosswalks are painted rainbow and there are rainbow flags in many business windows. During the gray parts of the day, it’s hard not to notice the color brightening up the gloom. And then, of course, there’s the green. It’s always nice to see green everywhere you go. And water! I was going across the I-90 floating bridge this morning and it’s lovely to see the blue of the lake stretching out on either side.
It’s been about 7 years now since I lived in the Seattle area and a lot of things have changed. Obviously, the city has been growing. I went to Elliott Bay Books yesterday, which has moved from downtown to Capitol Hill, meaning it is no longer near Elliott Bay. When I lived here before, we had a business that was named after a region in the suburbs – Bel-Red. So when we moved to downtown Seattle, people were constantly confused about where we were located (understandably so). But I guess when you’re a Seattle institution, it probably isn’t such a big problem.
Finished the day off with a trip to Taste of India in the U District. The food was delicious as always but there is just so much of it. I ate til I was stuffed and still had what looked like a full plate of food in front of me. The waiters kept walking by, I think trying to figure out why we weren’t eating. My plate was so full of food that when they set it down on the table, the impact caused an avalanche of rice. If you’ve never been there, it’s worth a trip. Just be prepared to take home half your meal.
I'm generally pulled in a million different directions and I wouldn't trade it for the world. Here's a glimpse of my life - hope you enjoy it! And if there's a big lapse between posts, well, that's the way life goes in Amy's world.
