Back in Seattle again. I’m taking a months vacation to reflect on the balance of work and play. For me it is a thin line and requires me to be ever mindful and conscious of. I caught up with an old friend who flu into town to visit me while I am here. I know Seattle is the home of Starbucks but…. there is a ridicules amount of coffee shops downtown. But that’s ok because I have been know to consume a ridicules amount of coffee at times.

Last wee the cheery blossoms where at their peak up on Capital Hill. Not quit on the scale of some Japanese cities but impressive non the less. I’ll post some pictures next month of thousands of trees in bloom along the river banks in Osaka, Japan.

Over the weekend I went camping down in Westport on the Pacific coast. Some big surf in the moonlight before bed and a great day surfing on Saturday.
