Matt Bazemore (the artist above) is a painter from the Ballard area of Seattle. If you look at his website many of his pictures are of Ballard. Matt work is fantastic, I love his use of bright colors. He really brings Ballard to life in a unique way. Go to mattbazemore.com and see his work, you will definitely be impressed. My favorite painting is the coffee on the side of the 5 Spot cafe.

A few weeks ago I was in the emergency room at Harborview Hospital. I was in my room with two nurses who were both trying to give me an IV. One was putting the needle in my left arm, the other in the back of my right hand. If you ever had an IV put in you know they hurt, doubly if you are dehydrated. So I was cussing up a storm and pissing the nurses off because I dread needles. The nurse says, "do you hear anybody else swearing?" Two seconds later a man screams, "I've got to fucking pee, can anyone hear me I got to fucking pee!" He was a junky strapped to a bed in the hallway. I died laughing it was so funny.
I love Bitter Lake especially near sundown. The clouds reflected on the lake are exquisite, like a beautiful painting.

I saw these words on the play bill wall at Pike Place Market. There was more written but I only photographed the part that made me happy.

I was in Harborview Hospital for 6 weeks. 3 of those weeks I was flat on my back in a special bed that felt like an air mattress. 6 weeks of watching TV and complaining about the horrible food. Eating was tricky while lying on my back, some foods wouldn't stay on the spoon.. Soon I will have to experience this ordeal all over again. I just hope they have put new movies on the movie channel. I saw Alice in Wonderland 27 times.
