So, we went to Bodies; The Exhibition on Sunday in Seattle and I liked it. Not as much as I thought I would, but it was still utterly amazing. I wasn't grossed out at all by it....not really sure why some people are. There were alot of people there and everyone seemed in awe. Although after going through the first couple of rooms I whispered to Tracy that they should have named the exhibit; MEAT. Because that was what all the muscles looked like. The highlight room for me was the blood vessel room. These are the most delicate and intricate "sculptures" I have ever seen. It has made me view myself differently. There is the aspect of all the "meat" and the greyish organs and everything else. But then I remember that the beautiful blood vessel system is inside me too. It reminds me that we are a beautiful spiritual being inside of an earthbound "organic" casing. What has intrigued me the most since the show was the similiarity between our rib bone and tale bone and a whales (which they show next to each other). Anyway...if you can afford the $25, go. If not, it's not a life or death situation if you don't go. I have to say that I came away from it with more respect for my body. I am now hoping that relates to me getting more exercise and eating better. we'll see.
we went to check out a "funky studio loft" above shorty's in belltown. It was only $400 but the building seemed like a hangout for drug addicts. It was really bad and the rooms were even worse. When we finally got out of there, we both let out a big sigh. the search goes on.
