Work, X2Engine has been stressing me out lately. It’s been a long year designing and coding and in a few weeks we will finally ship the GA release. Andrew came down for the day last week and decided we needed to take a hike in a nearby Redwood forest. This time of year I really wasn’t up for it considering all the poison oak and ticks but after some persistence I was persuaded to take a break and head outside. I feel so very lucky to live so close to these magnificent giants. They are incredibly calming to walk under to just relax and think – and enjoy time.
