About the Name

Greetings to all! This is my first blog.

Emerald City Scion, is a collection of musings, opinions, critiques, essays, interesting tidbits and (hopefully) investigative work.

"Emerald City" refers to Seattle, Washington, where I live. A "scion" per the Encyclopedia Britannica is:

. . . the act of placing a portion of one plant (called a bud or scion) into or on a stem, root, or branch of another (called the stock) in such a way that a union forms and the partners continue to grow.

So, this blog, Emerald City Scion, is a grafting of my work here to the larger body of web-based writing and journalism.

Nuff said!
