Vehicular Voyeurism

The street on which I live is strange, like a half-street or a extremely large driveway, and is perched 5 stories above the freeway, inviting such vehicular voyeurism. It’s kind of hard to put your head around how many people are driving by – so many different people on their way to so many different things.

I like walking across the street and standing at the guardrail, watching the traffic fly by 50 feet below on I-5. At night, when the whole city seems to be the colour of street lights, that indescribable yellow-purple-orange, the whoosh of the interstate is almost calming, and watching the ebb and flow of the traffic is oddly like watching a flowing river.

Living downtown really agrees with me. I was very lucky to find this apartment, because I really feel like I’m at home here in downtown Seattle, curled up on my window sill basking in the glow of the Space Needle and all those oddly hued streetlights.
