Negative Capability

Keats spoke of a “negative capability” - a state of being where one becomes a channel for expression - fashioning the self as a channel and a repository of external information.

The Cedar Lumber Manufacturing Company’s mill, located just west of the Ballard Bridge, was the largest in Ballard. At the mill, logs were cut into lumber which was then dried for at least nine months before being sold. The stacks of drying lumber were over 50 feet high. In 1958, these stacks caught fire and burned. Ballard residents remembered the huge blaze for many years. (+)
