In a city full of  Birkenstocks, coffee grinds and rain jackets, there occasionally are a few days of glorious spring weather in between what we Seattle-ites like call the ‘convergence’ zone.

It is when we come out of our bookstores and cafes, maybe do some yard work, or in my stepfather’s case, haul out the ole’ Harley Davidfriggnson. A stereotypical white collar 40 year old, father of 2, he was the only man who could convince my mother that cigar smoking was in fact beneficial for his health lol.

One day, the 6ft 250lbs son of Norwegian immigrants threw away his three piece suit and left Seattle with only his credit card, driver’s licence and the ole’ Harley Davidfriggnson. Mom, having gone through a similar tantrum, knew that there were some that just needed the open road.

I learned something that week that I guess my inner Dorothy needed at the time: There is more than one kind of freedom. Freedom to and freedom from.

Not all yellow brick roads lead to the Emerald City and not all rainbows bring you sunshine. If I were a betting kind of woman, I’d wager to say my mum welcomed the change in her husband.

In fact, she was damn proud of him.

  1. Good story 🙂 And I couldn’t help but smile in how much “Birkenstocks, coffee grinds and rain jackets” reminds me of Vancouver.
