Street name poetry


I think I’ve always paid attention to street signs, maybe it’s part of my inherent need to map things out, I’m not really sure why but that probably doesn’t even matter really.  When we were at Bainbridge Island and Suquamish, I immediately noticed how poetic the street names were and since I was driving, I had my mom write them down. I was looking at these two little jewels of paper this morning, my mom’s writing, cherishing them and the words she wrote and the times we have together-
