My Field Trip to Seattle’s Northwest African American Museum

February 28, 2013


I took a tour of the Northwest African American Museum in Seattle yesterday, in my role as a chaperon for a skilled nursing home. I’m assuming the activities director chose the museum because it’s February,  designated Black History Month in the United States, but am not certain. She might have picked it for other reasons – it […]

T Shirt Shop Transactions

A few differences between Seattle and New York (as I see them)….

February 4, 2013


I’ve been told by several former New Yorkers that it’ll take 2-3 years of adjusting before I’ll be comfortable in Seattle. That sounds like a long time to me. What does adjusting mean to most people? Doesn’t it become obvious fairly quickly whether you like a place or not? If you don’t like a place, […]
