I read about this place in Seattle called the Gum Wall. I donít remember where it was that I read about it but I know that there was supposed to be wall where people just placed their chewed gum.
On my last trip out to Seattle I could not find it. I looked around for it but not really knowing the area I was not sure where to look.. I also did not ask anyone for directions because I didnít want to be embarrassed. So I ended up leaving Seattle without ever seeing the Gum Wall.
Which leads me to tonight. I was walking around Pikes Place Market when I took a wrong turn and stumbled out into an alley and what was right before me? The Gum Wall!!!! The wall I had read about.
Here I was before the wall and I did not have my camera and my cell phone was out of charge so I could not even take a picture. I did happen to have in my mouth gum which I left behind on the wall.
Now in Seattle there is a small piece of me left behind in that chewing gum that I stuck on the wall. I contributed to a part of modern art. Odd as it sounds, there is something fulfilling about that.
