I took a break on Saturday from writing music and running laps to spend some time in the city. Although I know the area quite well, and have seen almost everything twice, I like the idea of being immersed in something that seems so much bigger than me.
I love going to record stores in Seattle because the clerks have absolutely no idea if they have something or not....Most don't use computer systems.......its all cash and memory--"If you don't see it, then we don't have it" sort of deal. So when you find something neat, it's as though you have found a little treasure that the owner didn't even know was in the store. For some strange reason, I really like that.
