Writing, Chihuly, Temporary Ailments

In reverse order:

1) I finally got something written, a drabble for
[community profile] dw100 . Drabbles are my most difficult challenges, because I write long, not short.
2) The four of us went to the Chihuly Garden and Glass museum, right below the Space Needle. It was wonderful - shapes and colors and textures that were amazing, and a garden where Chihuly's glass art interacted organically with, well, the organic garden around it. I didn't take many pictures, and I was ultimately glad; the place was full of people who seemed to want to do nothing more than take selfies, or have people take pictures of them, in front of the art - but very few of those people seemed interested in actually looking at and experiencing the art. When Andy convinced me that he could send me pictures from one of his earlier trips to the museum, it was very freeing.
3) I appear to have successfully fought off some sort of stomach and gut-based bug that bid fair to make the day miserable for me. Hurrah for medications that kept that at bay!
4) We went to the Ballard Locks tonight, to watch the sunset, see salmon swimming up a ladder around the locks, and see boats sailing out to Puget Sound. And then we found a very nice Tex-Mex place to have a late supper and talk about music (Harry Nilsson, John Lennon, and such, because we're old farts.) Totally enjoyable.

And tomorrow is my 63rd birthday.

It is, absolutely lovely - a lot of hills to climb and maneuver around, but worth it. Now, if the clouds would lift just a little more, so that I could see Mt. Rainier before we leave ....

Believe it or not, I haven't yet had the chance to go to the Chihuly Museum. Alas! But I've seen his work in various places around the state, and I'd love to go. It sounds fantastic! (Also yes, that trend of people only taking pictures at museums and not actually experiencing the art is... not one that makes me happy. I try to do both.)

And BTW, happy birthday, again!

The next time you find yourself here you really must go to the museum. And thanks for the extra birthday wishes!

Thanks - luckily I started feeling better about mid-afternoon the day before my actual birthday, so things were much better by the time folks took me out for my birthday meal.
