Seattle, Washington will never be quite the same to me. I don't live there, but I do visit from time to time, and it is one of my favorite cities in America, no joke. I love the history of the town; from its founding by members of the Denny party (a fascinating group of people) to grunge music of the 90's, Seattle just fascinates me. While many don't think of it as a cultural hotspot, Seattle excels in both artistic endeavors as well as cuisine. I've been to the finest restaurants in London, Chicago, New York, Paris and more, however the dining in Seattle is on par to anywhere I've ever been. The natural beauty which surrounds the area is quite varied and breathtaking as well. Truly, Seattle is a city to behold.
The world is going to melt or freeze or drown soon. Sorry if that's a surprise but I somehow doubt it. Some of you are making an effort but most of its a token one at best. Rather then trading carbon emissions and setting your forests on fire while blaming others do it yourself. Rather then big headlining ideas look for small and build up to the bigger picture. You need to change a few laws, bring in some new and above all make sure they are obeyed. You might upset a few of your friends but they can manage.
Here's my vision of the world that we live in. Humans are not connected! We only share connectivity with comfort. I'm talking about connection between a same kind, a same species. We basically walk in a straight line without seeing each other. We are talking about family, friendship, acquaintance, colleague etc...but are we talking about connection on a basic purely instinctive level?
