This Week in Spring - August 10th, 2021

Engineering | Josh Long | August 10, 2021 | ...

Hi, Spring fans! How're you doing? I hope you're doing well. You know, I've been thinking a lot about how to retain that zen-like peace that comes with a vacation spent on the beach. I got back from Hawaii eight days ago and I found it to be so very beautiful. Nature really sold it for me; the fresh air is everything. If you don't have ready access to nature - if you, like me, are in a giant city with the ongoing sound of car horns ("klaxons"), fire engines, traffic, and everything else that accompanies any big city - then may I invite you to breathe with me?

Just sit still for 30 seconds…
