Magnificent Elm

I went exploring in the Central District recently and was rewarded with street after street of fall foliage on a blue sky afternoon. I came upon a towering elm that dominated the corner where it grew and dwarfed this tall section of the Islamic School of Seattle building that stood beside it. The Islamic School of Seattle provides bilingual, Montessori-based education. It is housed in very lovely historic buildings which once served as a Jewish day school.

I love everything about this post, including the fact that Jewish children and Moslem children shared this space, even if they weren't there at the same time.

Lovely image and even more lovely idea of the two religious groups having used the same space, albeit not simultaneously, but that may evolve, too, over the fullness of time.

Great post Kim. Not only do the colors work, I also appreciate the history of the building.
