The True Believers Among Us

April 20, 2013

2

A True Believer is someone who is deeply, sometimes fanatically devoted to a cause, organization, or person. I live among true believers – they’re my co-op neighbors. Our housing association does not pay any vendor for maintenance services. Instead, to save money, we each have assigned chores. More than that, we have a monthly work […]

Finally…..a Worthy, Seattle Protest!!!

April 1, 2013

0

Many people outside of the Pacific Northwest think of Seattle as a crunchy, green, cause oriented city. That’s somewhat true I would say – there have been very large public protests here in the past (the World Trade Organization protests in 1999 being the most infamous) but mostly not. Like all progressive cities, the causes […]

Does Seattle Need “Actors, Models and Talent for Christ??”

March 18, 2013

When driving on the main road near my apt in North Seattle, I often pass by an  Actors, Models and Talent for Christ (AMTC) billboard. I had driven by the billboard a few times originally thinking it was nothing more than a cheesy, low-budget ad but at some point I read it. Seeing the name […]

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

February 16, 2013

One of the ideas I’ve thought about regularly these past few years has been a T-shirt collection. It doesn’t get much simpler than that for a budding entrepreneur. It wouldn’t require a lot of money to start with and selling the stuff online couldn’t be too difficult I always figured. Now, having more free time […]

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, […]

Brother, can you spare a dime?

I’m used to beggars. Almost every subway ride I took while living in NY involved a beggar. The beggar(s) either asked for money, asked for money with an accompanying sob story, or asked for money while performing (playing an instrument, dancing). It can be profitable; how else to explain seeing the same person with the same […]
