The Pink Elephant, or, as I commonly hear it, “The pink elephant in the room that no one is talking about,” I just figured, we might as well have an image of a pink elephant.
The image is from last summer’s trip to Seattle, and the car wash’s emblem caught my attention several times, but I finally walked around the sign, as it was spinning, if I recall, attempting to get one good, simple image.
Located either in the Queen Anne district, or adjacent to it, it’s mere meters from the ubiquitous space needle, truly a modern icon. The image haunted me for years, the giant pink elephant, and I finally, with this posting, hereby exorcise its imagery from my conscious and subconscious mind.
With this, the new horoscopes are up. Pink elephants, indeed.

That’s me, the author, reading the first entry, the part that follows the front-piece but falls in front of the table of contents.
