Beautiful Architecture

I did something I haven’t done in a long time and attended
a book reading at the Seattle Downtown Library.
The subject was earthquakes presented by Sandi Doughton.
Interesting but only slightly unnerving at the same time.
Having lived in earthquake zones I’ve come to not fear
earthquakes; all you can do is be well prepared.

As I was leaving I was reminded of the beauty of the
library building itself and how I hope it never descends
into rubble.

is Joshua Prince-Ramus.
