I’m back. I hadn’t intended on taking four months off, or maybe I did. I wasn’t sure if I was going to come back at all, but I’ve decided I’m ready for a fresh start…in SEATTLE! Yup, remember my summer road trip? We moved to Seattle! We returned to a house we had rented for ten years (I’ve been busy…brushing away cob webs, pulling weeds, and PAINTING!). I originally moved to Seattle in the 90’s from DC, and hit the ground running, got a job, found a roommate and met my husband. We then spent the next 16 years on adventures away from Seattle…Zurich, Vienna and QUEENS! Now we’re back (for the high school years at least) and it’s like we’ve landed in an entirely new city. Lots of the old Seattle is gone, replaced by shinier, newer and in some cases lame architecture. But…some of the new architecture is EXCITING. It’s been fun rediscovering this city, and it keeps surprising me. So, A Bolt of Blue has switched coasts…reporting on the same things…but with a new and improved west coast twist!
