How about now?
Fremont Solstice Festival Seattle naked cyclists parade kickoff *
Ok do I have your attention? (I should have left the patch off, right? )
So. You should be just about ready to cast on a red scarf for the Orphan Foundation of America's Red Scarf project. Knit a red (or non-gender-specific) color scarf, approx 5-8" wide and around 60" or so long, to be included in a care package to a college kid who aged out of foster care and is going it on their own. Send it in by December 15th. The address, and more info about this wonderful effort here.

* When I asked my 16yo son Gabe if he'd come out to Seattle and work for me on a series of photo shoots right after school ended this past June, he surprised me by asking if we'd be there for Solstice. He's not usually much of an earthy-crunchy-granola guy. I asked why he cared. The Fremont festival, said he. Naked bicyclists. Like, hundreds of them.
You know what? It was a fabulous parade and party. The naked cyclists were just the kickoff. In fact the whole week was full of fabulous. We might just go back in 2011. Gabe says he's going to be in the parade. On a bicycle.
