sarah had a work-related meeting in seattle. i tagged along.
my main priority was to meet j. and j., who, overnight, made crispin and jurg's house a home.
then, i headed south to lacey, to saint martin's university, to be part of an exciting faculty development workshop organized by irina gendelman, nathalie kuroiwa-lewis, and olivia archibald and held in o'grady library.
after the workshop, irina and i spent the night on a walkabout through funky olympia, wandering and pondering, walking and talking about everything, including her nearly completed dissertation.
(update: irina gendelman blogged about the workshop and included notes regarding the speakers of the second day.)
back to seattle, sarah and i headed to lee and sachi's (of common craft) to join jay and anastasia (of juxtaprose) for good food, good drink, good talks, and good times.
saturday was spent with beth in ballard, frowning on the new condos and recent developments, walking and talking about new ideas, and smiling at the beautiful puget sound.
sunday brunch with nancy pearl, joe pearl, and sarah was, as always, delightful.
and then a ferry ride to vashon for a delicious meal with lynne and chris and peyton and an after-dinner stroll along the sound.
good to see you seattle.
