The American author Tom Robbins once described Seattle by saying, “To some extent,Seattle remains a frontier metropolis, a place where people can experiment with their lives, and change and grow and make things happen.”
That, for the most part, fairly well summarizes why our son Will moved there this summer and started classes at the Academy of Interactive Entertainment. He is looking to change and grow and make things happen in his life. We are very proud of him.
In the process of checking out the school, it gave me a great opportunity to get a little photoremedy. I was very much impressed with all there is to be experienced there.
Seattle is a major coastal seaport city that features lots of opportunities to explore the surrounding area’s water, mountains, icons (like the Space Needle), and much more.
We’ll be looking to return to Seattle often. It is always great to see Will, and we will of course throw in a few opportunities to shoot more photos.
Mary and Will wouldn’t let me drive to Seattle when we moved his items there. They both indicated they were concerned that a long car ride (they were averaging more than 10 hours a day) would put my back in bad shape.
So, I flew in and Mary and I took a leisurely (a few hours daily) drive back to Arizona. My back ‘issues’ require that we frequently stop for me to ‘walk it off.’ And, as often as possible, I reload the ice packs I need for both my cervical and lumbar regions. The leisurely approach worked perfectly. There was awesome photoremedy all along the way, and I was able to capture (what I think were) some of the best pictures I have taken to date. I’ll be sharing some of these in upcoming posts.
