Slouching Towards Lummi Island
Part 1 of 4: Leaving
A writer’s job is to listen. To observe. To remain apart from the story.
That said, I recently travelled to Lummi Island to film a video episode for a food network.
Let’s just say that comfort zones may have been violated in the course of the project.

And your moment of Lummi Island zen.
Another typical day in the Pacific Northwest. If you’re a native, you know the drill.
A day when rain washes down in curtains, not drops.
When the highest setting on your windshield wipers prove useless against the torrential downpour tormenting you.
A day when you pray that the car that just backwashed you won’t hydroplane into you.
That kind of day.
Definitely not a day to be out and about in a SmartCar.
But I have work to do.
And the universe has a diabolical sense of humor sometimes.
