But today at work I took a moment to Google some Native American place names around the Seattle area, to see if my co-workers could pronounce them.
One of the names was "Tulalip", which is an Indian reservation near Tacoma. And when I saw the logo (see above), in the Pacific Northwest style of art (totem poles are from the Pacific Northwest -- from Alaska down to (I think) Oregon), I got a bit nostalgic.
As I told my co-worker, I still like Seattle -- but I'll never live there again. My kids are here -- and once they grow up and get jobs and have kids, I need to stay here, too, if I'm going to see my kids at all.
Even if one of my kids moves to the States -- the others would still be here, around Brisbane.
So, I'm here: I'm gonna be buried in another country.
