It was a sea of blue. Floating clouds of white. Shades of green. With an occasional glimpse of wolf gray. Today was the season opener for the Seattle Seahawks, at home, in Centrylink Field. It was also 9/11. I found myself lucky enough to be included in a trip to see the game with my … Continue reading Game on.
Just because a place is beautiful doesn't mean you are perpetually happy. Just because a skyline is postcard-picture perfect doesn't mean you know what your future holds.
