I recently left California for my Pacific Northwest home for the holidays and maybe this isn’t surprising to anyone at all who has left and returned home, but my perception of how I look at Seattle has completely changed. I now have come to the realization that being stuck in traffic in Seattle is nothing compared to what it is like in the Bay when I am driving 280 to get up to San Francisco. I appreciate the skyline in Seattle so much more as I’m driving into the city whereas when I lived here and was so used to that drive, I would never take a second to look to my right and see the Space Needle gleaming down at me. I think it’s one of the most gorgeous sights even though it is a tourist wallet eater. I am very much drawn to the lights of my city during my trip home this time around and if I could give it some sort of a theme, I would but for now I’m pretty happy that I have such a strong and vivid image of the skyline twinkling even if I’m not here.
These tunnel of lights above can be found in Japan though!
