Pioneer Square, Seattle
After leaving a meeting with NBIS last Thursday I took a brief stroll through Pioneer Square in Seattle. There I met Jim and Deborah, both exhibiting work for First Thursday. Until I asked what they were set up for, it hadn't dawned on me that this was the first Thursday of the month. Even worse, although I often work in Pioneer Square, I've never take then time to explore any of the galleries, tents, etc. There were some really interesting people and a couple of good conversations were had.
Deborah sits with people and draws stories in 90 seconds or less. She asked me what my favorite animal was. I replied the mongoose because it's small and unassuming, but stands up when it needs to. In 90 seconds I was handed a signed piece of art with a personal story. Thanks Deborah! I'll be making it a point to enjoy the First Thursdays from now on.
