In a sure sign of spring, the swallows have returned to the parking garage at the Ballard Safeway.
Swooping in in and out of the underside of the supermarket, they noisily nest in the asbestos coating the garage roof provides. In doing so they kick bits of the cancer causing material out on to our cars, in a ritual that gives the shopper a sense of his place in the grand scheme of time.
Not quite San Juan Capistrano but it will do for Seattle. Perhaps we could get Morgan Freeman to narrate the event.
