I’m on vacation in Seattle, hanging out with friends. I really have to remember how enjoyable it is so I do it more often than I have historically. Getting away really is good for me.

Why in the world would I forget such things?

Also of interest, I managed to easily find the magic shop I remember seeing as a pre-teen (nearly 20 years ago) in Pike Place Market. I sometimes wonder why I remember such things. Now I have foam balls to entertain my niece with if I ever remember to go visit her again (and already managed to puzzle our hosts after 20 minutes of practice).
