And I feel like we have a connection. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that both in this city and in my city, it's raining 9 months a year. Very wet. Yuck. BUT, during rainy periods, you can make very beautiful pictures...haha. Right? Yes.

So, could rain be the (only) connection-element between me and Seattle? No I don't think so.
For years, Seattle's nickname was Queen City until my year of birth. How odd. And then it changed to 'Emerald City'. Emerald City is the fictional capital city of the Land of Oz in L. Frank Baum's Oz books, first described in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. This movie was released in the states for the first time in...my birthyear.
So, there is indeed a connection between me and Seattle since the day I was born.
Sleepless in Seattle happens to be my favorite romance movie (ever). Also, I LOVED, LOVED...and still LOVE Frasier (I still watch the reruns at night on television). Best tune ever if you ask me. I also LOVE Grey's Anatomy. Yes I do! All are Seattle-based television shows.
When I was young and very much into Basketball, my favorite NBA-star was Shawn 'The Reign Man' Kemp. Power forward of the Seattle Supersonics. :) We both wore number 40. This could be no coincidence...or perhaps it just was.
I know for sure something is going to happen to me, once I set foot in Seattle.
Another Seattle coincidence I read about, earlier this week...a man woke up in Seattle's 'Discovery Park', with no memories and not knowing how the hell he end up there.
Some cool facts about Seattle.
And the signs don't stop(!): I went searching for Seattle pictures for this blogpost, and the first pictured I really liked was taken by a guy named Daniel...-SIGH-
