Just after I finished a conference call on Saturday morning,
“I want to take you to somewhere. You will love it!”
I am the kind of person who does only one thing when I am under stress, work.
J is very different from me in that regard.
No matter how tough the situation he is in, he takes breaks and he can enjoy the moment.
I am grateful that he is different.
He helps me relax and look around.
I know that I would miss many of life’s wonders without him.
The place he took me was the Ballard Locks,
where fresh water meets salt water, and
where we can watch salmon migrate up the fish ladder.
We took a one-hour tour and enjoyed sunny Saturday afternoon
(one of the few left in Seattle this year).
