♥ Gorgeous pink flowers, seen at Pike Place Market last weekend. Oh, how I love that place!:
I’ve been there so many times, yet I’m always so enchanted with it and always become very absorbed in it. I love the flowers, the little shops spread out over so many different floors, the restaurants with the views of Elliott Bay, the bakeries, the musicians (I sat for a while and watched a man who was singing Simon and Garfunkel songs very beautifully), the hidden treasures. I also love the vitality of it all and really like to wander around and watch the crowds and the activity.
I was in Seattle with my mom for a few days. We had a great time and very much enjoyed downtown. Sometimes I really, really miss living there and would love to again, if it becomes feasible to do so.
And, oh goodness, the Seattle Central Library is gorgeous and wonderful! It was my first time visiting it. I’m generally not a fan of Deconstructivism (which is probably the most accurate classification for the building’s style), and most often prefer classical/neo-classical type architecture/buildings, but if a building is splendid and beautiful, then it is, regardless of its style:
I would love to spend more time there! ♥
It’s always so wonderful when I’m listening to my I-pod, on shuffle, and, by chance, a song comes on that feels so appropriate and perfect for what I’m doing at that moment. While in Seattle, I was sitting on an outdoor terrace at one of the downtown malls, eating lunch, watching everything intently, when M. Ward’s “Hold Time” came on (it’s from the album of the same name. I’ve been rather enamored with it since it came out in February- definitely recommended) and it perfectly reflected the wistful, poignant loveliness that I was feeling/seeing. It’s one of my favorite songs, and the video is mesmerizingly beautiful:
My favorite lyric is:
I wrote this song just to remember the endless endless summer in your laugh
And a screenshot from the video, with that lovely lyric:
So gorgeous ♥♥♥
More soon! Thanks so much for reading. ♥
