The world, it keeps on changing. It is our human nature to resist this, but we are also defined to some degree by how we cope with change. In my little corner of the world, Auto Row is being replaced by tall, featureless walls with bland apartments inside, work-out gyms of every ilk, and locavore cafes, two or three to a block. I could do without most of it, but I do like the cafes.
At the foot of Capitol Hill, Starbucks will soon retrofit this particular auto row building into a neighborhood cafe and coffee roaster.
Also very soon, at the other end of the block, beloved Bauhaus coffee house will be demolished to make way for another tall wall of apartments.
It kinda makes my head spin most days, the change going on around Seattle, some of it good, some of it disconcerting.
