I’ve been in Seattle since Tuesday for a Special Education conference with my fellow teacher, grad student and partner in crime, Stephanie. Here are a few of our adventures so far…
Being away from Los Angeles always gives me clarity and perspective. It reminds me of the “more” that I seek. It helps me return home to myself. Needless to say, I’m enjoying myself quite a bit. Steph and I have managed to make our way all over this small, little city. This place isn’t too bad…rain included.
Besides being called the “Rainy City,” a name it rightly deserves, Seattle is also called “The Gateway to Alaska.” From maps and clothing to art and photos, Seattle begs your compass to point north, north toward “The Last Frontier.” My heart has always longed to see and experience the wild of Alaska for myself. That being said, this summer I have decided to spend 5 weeks in her great unknown. The planning process is in full swing at last and I am so excited for the adventure to unfold.
Time to head back out into the rain.
To be continued….
Grace and Peace,
