In today’s cold fog
Sunlight never reached the ground
Underneath the moon
And this glorious sunset
Outside it is dark
Tapping sound from my drain spout
Water flowing down
My home was once there
The outward shape is still there
And yet, it’s transformed
Walking these old streets
Visions of dirty concrete
Echoes of our past
Grime and poverty
Once marked these streets with their truth
Now airbrushed away
Walking with dear friends
Explorations of this past
Amongst my future
Went walking today
Along my favorite shoreline
As the sun moved low
One of my favorite things is to walk along the waterfront in Edmonds, WA. Tonight I include a few photos I took along the way.
This grey morning light
Falls deftly through morning sky
Clouds from the ocean
Outside my window
Through the darkness of this night
Another grey day
Rainfall has moistened the ground
It’s feels very much like September this morning. The ground is damp from overnight rain. I great the crows debating their aviary issues of the day.
Having spent most of my life in our around Seattle, this is a common vision. One that connects me to so many memories, good and bad. Today I’m remembering living in downtown Seattle. That was home for nearly 10 years after I got out of the Navy. Basically, most of my twenties.
A fascinating time of my life. Trying to understand my place in the world. Discerning my dreams and goals. Mostly discerning myself, and my soul as unique and individual. Before that I either lived at home, in a dorm, on a ship, or in a barracks. I’d never truly lived alone.
This summer’s fires
I’ve grown weary of the bad air
Longing for autumn
It’s been a challenging summer for us Seattleites. Especially though with any kind of respiratory issues. Really looking forward to the relief autumn is promising.
