Tonight’s sunset wasn’t particularly remarkable, but was precisely the sort of moment that makes me so happy to live here in Seattle. After a spell of rainy, blustery weather, today’s pink and gold dusk was a welcome relief.
After the disappointments and confusion of the last few days, it was so satisfying to to be drawn out of my thoughts by the beauty surrounding me. Everyone was out today: the Olympics, the Cascades, and majestic Mount Rainier, separately and together a display of that specific brand of Pacific Northwest beauty I love. Those views still thrill and enchant me, and I’m looking forward to spring and summer even more than ever.
