Farewell Seattle, maybe see you around Christmas



So after a great evening with Seattle Wireless, as usuall some of us will hunt up a place to eat. I had already ate, so settled for a couple gin martinis and some great intellectual stimulation about changing the world. Afterward, as we conversed on the sidewalk (broadway, on cap hill) this man (above in the picture)
came up to us and asked if he could play us a song, well, if you lived up here you'd understand, that our initial reaction was 'not interrested, we got no money, get lost', etc--(well not get lost). But your basic callus responce to the perfectly able bodied panhandlers looking for drug/booze money. He told us it would cost us nothing and probably be the best song we would ever hear, Matt, and I both told him that we would like to hear his song but we were broke. 'No problem', says he. Setting down his guitar case and pulling out a well used instrument he begins singing about peace and harmony, with a terrific voice and a lot of passion. (It's good to be here in Seattle, I'll miss you when I'm gone). Chris and I gave him what we could both afford, welcomed him to Seattle, and thanked him for the song. I hope he goes far. He is making a change with the instrument God gave him. I can't sing, but someday I hope to use a computer to make changes too.

Read more about this brother of peace on his web site here.

Friday, I leave for the Bearing sea once again on the KJ (F/V kjevoya). I hope to make my dreams come true, or at least survive another fishing season, and hopefully not forget everything I worked to learn.

Peace!
