Today’s post features a few of my favorite snapshots I’ve taken around Seattle, Washington. I’m posting these in memory of the town, because M. and I have moved across the country and I start school in two weeks at Binghamton University in central New York as transfer student and Medieval History major! That’s why things have been quiet around here, we’ve both been very busy.
We are making a big move at the end of the summer, so travel has been on my mind. This move is different than my past travels. I have a real home here, for the first time since I was a kid, and I am going to move with my tiny family and establish a new home elsewhere. I’m not desperately seeking anything, I’m not trying to escape anything, and my accomplishments do not depend upon being on the road.
This summer, M. and I will be traveling to downstate New York to become acquainted with our new home, and so that I can attend orientation for fall quarter. The last time I was in New York was 2009, volunteering at Linwood Gardens through the WWOOF program.

Here is the ever-evolving blogroll, and a bibliography of sources cited in posts.
