Picture of the Day
  March 23, 2021


In a very serendipitous turn of events, we were able to swap homes with one of
Sarah's Philadelphia colleagues who is spending the next few months in Seattle. We're
inhabiting the 2nd and 3rd floors of her Wharton neighborhood duplex. This is the view
from where I've set up shop, passage of time marked at regular intervals by neighbor's
smoke breaks. The streets are flat and littered, no trees visible from this perch, no takers
at suction cup birdfeeder despite today's glorious spring weather. I walked to post office in
much tidier Passyunk, already thoroughly gentrified. But just wait, this nabe is on its way.
