I sit here listening to a lovely Sinfonia Concertante in E flat, which fills the room with a gentle feeling of peace and solitude. My son and his friends are quietly stumbling through the the calm after the loud, frightening, and tension filled last month of high school. And my daughter is nervously waiting for tomorrow when she flies to England to look for pottery shards in the dirt and wander around London.
Tomorrow I will head to a small town outside of Seattle called Roslyn to work with some architecture students who are lighting up buildings. Roslyn was the setting for the television series Northern Exposure and is reported to be artistic and enjoyable. The students are lighting up the buildings as part of a Northern Lights festival the town throws each year.
