Seattle’s Gum Wall…

Not sure which is worse: that it is there, or that we were there to take a look at Seattle’s Gum Wall in Post Alley beneath Pike Place Market. On a typically busy Sunday, we were not alone in that bustling section of town. Seattle folks are probably as tired of reading about the Gum Wall as I am about Portland’s Voodoo Doughnuts. Mediocrity rules at times…yet there we were. Fortunately, it was not the Gum Floor too.

The alley way walls are covered in many colors of chewing gum some eight feet high and fifty feet or so long and quite crusty (gooey/thick) in spots. And, of course, several family members chewed away on gum and then contributed to the germ depository called The Gum Wall.

The Gum Wall was apparently inspiring to an artist at Gum Wall as she convinced her bikini clad friend to be painted dabs of chew gum colors. Standing next to the Gum Wall the good natured friend/model blended into the gum mosaic…kind of.

Disconnected & Weary….

Are we distracted, weary, numb, overloaded, disconnected? We blame it upon work, money, the system. But are we perhaps disconnected from truth & reality while over saturated with the meaningless distractions of ‘culture’, manipulative agendas, relentless narratives? Stone smiles and flat eyes….  Just wondering….

A Cinco de Mayo Gathering

A new hispanic mercado/food carts venue in SE Portland along Foster Rd. drew a nice gathering on a chilly, threatening evening. Live music highlighted Mexican, Central American and South American sounds. And, several young children were decked out in traditional garb and danced to an appreciative audience. A simple, pleasant evening at the new Portland Mercado.
