Okay, this is not the perfect Seattle collage, but it's a start ...
Seattle was fun! We went to the Seattle Zoo, and Volunteer Park, and to the Space Needle! We all went to the top of the Space Needle. It was a clear day and the view was fabulous. I have always had a very distinct memory of being four or five and having an Orange Julius at the top of the Space Needle with my mom.
Except, as it turns out, that never happened. I don't know where the memory came from .
While in Seattle I also went to Open Books, a bookstore devoted exclusively to poetry. I bought Joshua Beckman's new book, a book by Matthew Zapruder, and a book by Barbara Guest.
Max turns 10 on Friday. He is excited and that is an understatement.
