Off to the Emerald City!

Tomorrow morning I leave for Seattle for my first PhD Residency. It will be four days of writing, networking, thinking, learning, and developing my skills as a scholar-practitioner in this crazy doctoral journey. I am excited and nervous. I'm going to miss Chris and Sofia so much, but am also looking forward to some "me" time. It's going to be weird to just be a student again. I'll be sure to write about my adventures when I return...maybe after a few days of resting my fingers! :)

Hello Seattle, I am a mountaineer
In the hills and highlands
I fall asleep in hospital parking lots
And awake in your house

Hello Seattle, I am a manteray
Deep beneathe the blue waves
Ill crawl the sandy bottom of Puget Sound
And construct a summer home

Hello Seattle, I am the cresant moon
Shining down on your face
I will disguise myself as a sleeping pill
And descend inside of you

Hello Seattle, I am a cold seahorse
Feeling warm in your sand
I sing about the tide and the ocean surf
Rolling in the evening breeze

Hello Seattle, I am an albatross
On the docks and your boats
I sail above your inlets and interstates
Through the rain and open wind

Hello Seattle, I am an old lighthouse
Throwing beams of bright lights
Red in the morning, blue in the evening sun
Taken heed from everyone
