September 25, 2005

What a wild weekend. After 41 hours on the train, I was especially glad to be back among friends in Seattle.

Yesterday, bought a bottle of Bombay Sapphire for Linda & Jesse, a thank you for keeping company with Miso.
(I further thanked them by drinking half of it.) Before that we walked in Peace March around downtown with an
estimated 5,000 other concerned citizens. The [s]hell t-shirt gift from Frank sure got a lot of attention.
Jesse and I attached origami doves to our bikes. As far as I could tell, we were the only
PEACE PEDALERS, but I'm hoping our numbers will grow.


I've gone gaga for origami.
So far I can only do doves,
but can cats be far behind?
Today, I attached eight to a white balloon at
Dylan and Angela's scenic outdoor wedding ceremony.
Getting there was half the fun--mad afternoon bikeride to
pick up the balloon at special rendezvous at the U., then slow
cranking through University District with huge white balloon floating
low over bicycle, bumping the back of my head, it miraculously missed
by less than an inch a profusion of protruding thorny blackberry vines. Lucky.

There are 8 because that number represents two circles joining to form symbol of infinity.
