seattle properties: Seattle Autumn Leaves - 11/01/11 03:27 PM
It was inevitable that I would find a way to get out and stroll among the vibrant colors of fall in Seattle with camera in hand before all of the trees were bare. The autumn leaves of red and gold have been calling me to join them, their haunting melody returning softly to remind me that time will not stand still to wait for me…
So here we are, enjoying a typical fall day in the Emerald City. Blustery, wet, with a hint of damp cedar clinging in the air. As one who truly loves this climate, the adventure was (17 comments)

As he declares that changing our vision of housing needs to start with seniors, Gordon Walker, renowned Seattle architect is leading the way. Walker, in his seventies, has created his concept of a retirement home for himself and his wife, in the trees on Orcas Island. Modular to a degree, and assembled on site, this contemporary example of "simply what we need" looms into the surroundings with a modern edge and designer feel. The link below will lead you to an article in today's Seattle Times, where you can catch a glimpse of something new, that just might be worth embracing. (10 comments)
seattle properties: Come With Us Now Into The Woods - 10/10/11 12:38 PM
Come with us now, into the woods, and feel Mother Nature. Her shimmering droplets of rain on our faces. Leaves cascade down ever so gently as trees stand tall and proud, even as their very roots are exposed for all to see.
Come with us now, as we cross over into a special place, that belongs to anyone with the desire to be here. Feel the serenity, smell the forest thick in the air, and know we are one.

seattle properties: Seattle Garden Of Remembrance - 09/25/11 01:25 AM
Walk with me now, through the Garden of Remembrance. It isn't far, just off 2nd Avenue and University. It will be worth the walk to Benaroya Hall, where the Seattle Symphony astounds us with timeless, captivating music.
We can walk with Seattle sons who served in World War II, share a moment with our brothers who went to Korea from this place they so loved, spend a little time with those who left this earth in Viet Nam, Grenada, the Gulf War, Philippines, Afghanistan, or Iraq.

seattle properties: Bronze, Silver or Gold - 09/12/11 11:51 AM
Seattle's Pike Place Market, is always an adventure on the weekends. The hustle and bustle, with fish flying, ice frantically being shoveled, produce trucks delivering seasonal bounty, and floral arrangements being bundled together with artistic flair.
Today, I have noticed a trio of street performers not singing, playing instruments or even juggling. Rather, contributing to the carnival vibe of Pike Place Market by becoming living art. Statue people, if you will, devoted to enhancing our overall experience with their very presence among us.
