I didn't mean to start the new year quite so silently here on nt40. Things have been busy, and I'm thinking a lot. I'm buried in Legos at home, and with year-end wrap up stuff at work. The dating thing is going very well, remarkably so considering that my usual MO is to rush headlong off a cliff over these things. I'll have something more substantial to say soon, but until then, I leave you with another foto, this one taken by my parents' neighbor of their house in Sequim. It encapsulates perfectly why I love to go there.
