SEATTLE, THE EMERALD CITY
Seattle and its surroundings are full of greenery the year round. That’s why it is nicknamed The Emerald City … and it is altogether a wonderful city.
In L. Frank Baum’s fantasy,“The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” Dorothy followed the yellow brick road to the Emerald City. My path to the real Emerald City won’t be made of yellow bricks. It will be an All Nippon Airways Dreamliner flight from Delhi to Tokyo and Tokyo to Seattle.
I’ve completed my four-year Peace Corps service in Kyrgyzstan and a visit to my India home town, Khajuraho. Now I’ll get resettled in my American home town … get reorganized … and continue writing my next book, FUTURE CHRONICLES, to publish in 2018.
It will be good to be home in The Emerald City.
