I am back in Seattle. This fact fills me with joy, as I do love this city…accept for one little thing….the weather. Now I know that might sound a bit rich coming from the Lady that lives in the Bay, and stares fog down regularly. It’s just that for the last three years, every time I come here….part if not all of the time I am here is a bit of a rainy day experience. Could I just have one or two days of sun? I suppose I will just have to come back again later in the summer as a compromise.
While I was out to lunch with my peeps I ran across this precious gem of a young woman. I loved her feeling of delicate perfection, clad in a carefree and sensible sweater. Unfortunately I did not capture the intensity of her gaze, but I love how relaxed she looked here.
Evening approached and I prepared for my attendance of Natalie Merchant in concert with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra.
I have listened to Natalie for many years, allowing myself to be soothed by Life is Sweet in life’s rougher moment, cheered by The Sleeping Giant and moved to the point of free and delicious giggles. For me she is the archetype of a Fully Formed Woman. She is kind, talented, persistent, humorous, and achingly human.
There can be no other woman that performs graceful, beautiful, composed poetry with a symphony….then goes on to sing, joke, laugh, and dance with abandon…as if the audience were her living room, and she could relax into the comfort of our adoration.
I had a lovely time walking around and chatting with other attendees of the performance. I have discovered that Seattle natives are warm, welcoming, and a great deal of fun to converse with.
