Life Out Here

Just a small way to keep my friends and family, who are strewn about the country, in The Know about my life in Seattle.

Happy Solstice!

Today is the summer solstice - the longest day of the year.
But there are other meanings too.
(It's just a coincidence that article was written by Rae. Funny.)

When I first moved to Seattle, I lived with my sister on a houseboat at Gas Works park. I had moved out by the time the summer solstice rolled around, but I must have been visiting because that night we heard drumming and chanting from the park. The pagans were doin' their thang. It was then it hit me. I ain't in Texas no more....

The sun rose at 5:11am this morning, and will set at 9:11pm this evening. Which means I won't be able to fall asleep until well after 11pm, since it will be light until after 10pm. Compare that with Houston - the sun rose at 6:20am and will set at 8:24pm this evening.

I'm all about stats......
