Which One Of These Things Doesn’t Belong? June 14, 2007Posted by gordonwatts in life.
I live in Belltown. Downtown Seattle. It is a concrete jungle. Sure, there are trees that grow out of the side walks, some nice parks that are all grass. But mostly around where I live there is just concrete and paved street. When I walked by this pile of dirt spilled on the sidewalk I became very confused. I mean — really confused. It took me a while to figure out why it was just so wrong — it was unconfined, messy dirt spilled all over the relatively neat and orderly sidewalk. I don’t think I would have even noticed it if it had been in one of the parks.
I think what happened is one of those large planters was broken (see a similar one in the background of the picture).
At any rate, just wanted to share my confusion with you. Amazing how much we put everything in its place in our minds. Just a foot down from that sidewalk it is all dirt… (ok, actually, more than a foot).
