I'm cold and I'm outta here.
I imagine it's silly to
jump on a cruise ship at my age
and float around playing Jenga all day
in the sunny Bahamas.
but somebody has to do it.
As my old roommate Joan would say,
I need sun.
I'm the most unlikely Seattle native
you ever met!
Even with my SAD lamp above my bed for
reading four hours a night
and my other SAD light three inches from my
face for an hour every morning while
I read The Seattle Times,
I'm still depressed.
Every time someone tells me they moved here
from San Diego or Denver
I go into internal shock.
I act like it doesn't surprise me
but my inner voice is shouting,
"Are you crazy?!"
When I was a flight attendant,
I learned that every other place in the world
has more sun than Seattle.
I felt totally validated by the
I've thought about moving but I'd hate to miss
summer in Seattle!
August 7th through the 17th.
