Pursuing the poetical, paradoxical, metaphorical, lyrical, artistical, majestical, and mystical.

Justin Froese

The Washington State Ferry system is a neighborly sort of giant. We love it, hate it, need it, and feel utter despair when it breaks down.

Most of all we are thankful for it, and grateful for the workers who breath our car fumes, start our dead batteries, give us a tow when needed, and freeze to death on our behalf during the winter.

Over the New Year's weekend, we enjoyed the music of Justin Froese and a friend. The lids of their instruments were closed. They weren't busking for money. They played for the joy. It brought a cheerful, hospitable vibe to the trip. This is my way of applauding their generosity.

Thanks for giving it away.
