Art, talent, skill, appreciation

Recently I got the chance to go to a student showcase at the studio I've been attending out here in Seattle, Emerald City Trapeze. The showcase was a performance of advanced students, not professionals, but those students had to audition and perform at a level far beyond my own scope of expertise. Performances included a...

Halfway through my sabbatical

Can you believe it? We're officially halfway through my sabbatical, and it's really weird. I wanted to take a moment to check in and talk about the experience so far and where I'm at. Seattle is still pretty overwhelming. It's full of a bunch of amazing things! But I am a small city girl, largely,... Continue Reading →

Part 4: Glacier

Last time, I talked about visiting Yellowstone National Park. That could have been the capstone to our trip. It wasn't. Our last planned stop on our roadtrip to Seattle was Glacier National Park. Glacier was the S.O.'s big goal for this trip, but it's a very hard park to visit. It's not designed for the... Continue Reading →

Part 3: Yellowstone

Hello! If you're just catching up, last time we were in the Badlands National Park and I was having existential thoughts about deceased forests. From the Badlands we continued west to Shoshone National Forest, crossing the Little Bighorn Mountains. We stopped in Cody, Wyoming for a truly bad coffee milkshake first. (It had potential, but...

Hello, Seattle

Hey folks! The S.O. and I have arrived safely in Seattle. I'll do another post talking about some of the awesome stuff we saw on the roadtrip out, but we've had some upsets in our scheduling and I haven't had my computer this week (the S.O. ended up having a lot of virtual education to...

Life is a whirlwind

You may notice that I didn't post last week. Usually I give warning if I am not going to post, but honestly last week was an entire mess that I largely can't discuss and I've fallen behind in my blog queue given the whirlwind of June. My brother got married on the 21st, we bought... Continue Reading →

The full 2020 experience

Yesterday, I waited in line for two hours to get a Covid test I probably didn't need, seeing as we already know the S.O. has Covid. It was my first time getting a Covid test and, at risk of putting you off of getting one, I thought I would describe the experience. Waiting in line... Continue Reading →
