As a counterpoint to yesterday's photo, I was reminded of this display across town in the Greenwood neighborhood. This is the storefront of Greenwood Space Travel Supply Co., a supposed space travel outfitter (to see the whole storefront click my More Seattle Stuff page). In reality it is a front for a very successful writing workshop program for students called 826 Seattle, (started at 826 Valencia Street in San Francisco's Mission District). One of my neighbors is on staff there, and its a wonderfully creative community resource that people can volunteer with. But really, doesn't this manikin look fabulous in her flame retardant quilted gown and sun flare goggles? Perhaps she knows Mr. NASA. :-)
