Site Notes

AFTER NINE DAYS on the road up Highway 1 and Highway 101, I've arrived in Seattle. They say the most ancient Chinese curse is "May you live in interesting times." A footnote to that would be, "May you live in an interesting city."

I'll be posting items from the trip up the west coast and the first few weeks here in Seattle over the next few days. As of now, my sole interent connection in Seattle consists of one of the few surviving Internet Cafes from the days before wireless, so the posting will be intermittent since it requires I drive to the cafe.

Yes, I know I should get a Mac laptop but that would make four Macs for me and that's a bit obsessive. Even for me.

Right now my main concern is finding a house to rent here in the city. If anybody knows of one in or about the Queen Anne section of Seattle, I'd be pleased to know about it via the email link at the top of this page. Thanks.

Glad to hear you made it safely. BTW, if you'd like to get rid of an excess Mac, you're welcome to ship it to me. :)

Anywhat, since you are in the Seattle area there's a bunch of creative types you may want to drop in on and visit. No, not Microsoft, I'm talking about creative people, not code monkeys with severe dyslexia. When you find yourself with some free time go and visit Wizards of the Coast. They're the fellows who produce coffee table art books disguised as rules. Then you have the hundreds of cards produced for about half dozen trading card games. You're talking about an art movement the mainstream art community knows nothing about. Give you something to write about when the usual subjects simply won't gel.

Good luck with the house hunting,

Sorry. I didn't know you were coming to Seattle until after you were already here. I could have warned you.
