I used to take the Bainbridge Island to Seattle ferry on a daily commute for nearly 11 years. The workday was long; I'd wake up at 6am and get home around 8pm, too exhausted to eat.

Life in Seattle was somewhat terrible, all things considered, but the night views from my car as Seattle disappeared into the distance were enchanting.

We should never forget the mountains that range in the distance. They are enormous and grounding, like silent gods.
