Picture of the Day

  January 11, 2013

Clear means cold in January Seattle.

The hundred-year-old house we live in
        isn't insulated, the windows are all single-pane.

To stem the heat bleed at least a little bit we cut bubblewrap to size
and stick it to the glass using nothing more than surface tension--just wipe
       with damp sponge and it clings for months. 
                                                                                   But despite this added barrier
I managed to get out of the house today. Took care of business the old-fashioned way--
by walking around for hours, with stops at post office, book store, art gallery, and music venue.

The setting sunlight came in horizontal, cast long shadows in golden glow.
