Christmas Ship

Dec 25 2004

Each year these boats sail through the city, making stops where they blast a choir’s performance of holiday songs. The lights were pleasant, even if the music was painfully loud. Several unexpected elements of the Seattle cityscape are decorated for the holiday season, such as these boats, the tops of some buildings including a tree-like formation on top of the Space Needle, and even the cranes and scaffolding of buildings in progress. This journal is on a several-week lag, which means I don’t get to write about things happening right now in my life for quite a while. On one hand this means I get extra time to think about them before I divulge them to the population of the Earth. On the other hand it means I don’t yet get to tell you all what a great Christmas we’re having. Oh well, in the meantime, I hope yours is going nicely.
