Chan Restaurant at Inn at the Market - Seattle WA - Pike Place Market

Caught off guard, spontaneous, surprised, unrehearsed.

:  :  :


at Cha:n restaurant very early one morning,

while I was walking around the Pike Place Market district,

I strolled through the courtyard of the Inn at the Market,

a ritzy four star hotel.

:  :  :

Looking in the window at 07:31,

I was caught visually by the repetitive lights hanging over the counter seating

and the red napkins placed precisely at each seat.

I fired off a couple shots and then when I shot this one,

the chef appeared in the kitchen doorway and voila,

magic happened.

:  :  :

Without the chef,

this would still have been an interesting image,

but his presence added the human element needed to make it better.

:  :  :

Sorry WTS is up a bit late this morning.

Work started Wednesday and the first week to week and a half of school

is so hectic and frenzied

that I am drained mentally and physically for days.

:  :  :

And I have had a headache in the top of my head for four days.

I think it is dehydration.

I drank a lot of water daily while I was off work.

But at work,

if I drank that much, I’d be in trouble.

We are a bit captive

(if you get my drift) in the bus

and restrooms and time to find one are not readily available on my route.

I drank a lot of water when I got up this morning

and my headache seems to be letting up.

:  :  :

If you have school children,

how did their

first days go?
