    I’d rather watch these Olympics any time!


    During the Summer of 2012, I was still in Transitional Housing in Pioneer Square. The Community Room on my floor had west facing windows. We had a view of Elliott Bay, and beyond framed by the two levels of the Viaduct.


    I believe it was during the opening ceremonies, for the 2012 Summer Olympics, that I was at the table, next to the window, with only one other Resident in the room, who was on the couch watching the ceremonies.


    It was a nice clear day, and I momentarily moved my chair to face the window, and called out; “Hey, [His Name]! I’m watching the Olympics!”



Sorry, comment time is over.
