A Walk In The Park

I wrote a tribute to Seattle's park system and it's available today at The Morning News.

LOVED your article about Seattle's parks. It made me homesick! Oh! We moved about ten years ago, but I still miss "my" city.

GREATLY enjoy your blog, thanks.

When I volunteered to teach at-risk youth, I didn't know the word "yo" had been buried in the teen venacular graveyard. So uncool.

I didn't know Lincoln Park had horseshoe pits. Now where do I get horseshoes?

This is re: the previous post.

I know one person named, "August"; she is a beautiful girl and, no, it isn't short for Augusta.
I know August is just short for the Latin name, Augustus, but it will forever be associated with a pretty girl and her auburn hair.

...that is all.

My neighbors have a 4 year old boy named August - Gus, for shourt. Also, August is not just a month, but also an adjective, a synonym for "majestic" or "venerable." Kinda cocky, if you asked me.

Fabulous article, although it made me homesick too! I miss the green parks, but I'm really upset I never got to hear anyone shout "reality" on any of my runs. Does the opposite work? I would love to be able to get rid of reality with a single word.

I'd remind you of the esteemed author August Derleth.

'Nuff said!

Cthulhu f'taghn!

That was some article! You've just inspired me to move to Seattle. They really have lovely parks, do they? Awesome!

What a wonderful park you are talking about!!!! Its beauty reminded me about my visit to the Emirates!!! Of course, there isn't so much vendure!!! But the area of resorts, where a lot of luxurious Dubai hotels are situated attracts tourists' attention greatly!!! The environment is still more sandy and arid!!! I like this country very much!!! :)
