Just to give you a sense of my current state of mind, I am sitting on an easy chair in the garden of a beautiful house overlooking the Pacific Ocean on the beautiful island on Maui in Hawaii, one of the most spell binding places on earth. The fact that I am in the middle of the Pacific Ocean simple adds to the sense of seclusion and calmness that I feel, quite contrast of the high level of activity at COFES 2009. Its 8:30 in the morning and all kinds of birds have come out to greet me. All that is left to do is take in the marvelous air and listen to the waves in the distance.

I arrived last evening after a six hour flight from Phoenix. I am actually here on business, but I don’t think I am going to much of it in this environment. My business partner in Print3D, Ron Barranco, lives on Maui. He was supposed to attend COFES 2009 with me, but something came up and he could not make it. So I decided to fly here instead.

Ron’s taking good care of me. I hear that he has arranged for a young lady to come over and give me a massage this afternoon. My wife is reading this blog back in India. So I am not going to get into the other plans for today. Last night, Rhonda, Ron’s wife and a wonderful hostess, barbecued some Salmon and concocted a lemon drop Martini for us. She let me know this morning that she has made better plans to dinner tonight.

Talking business with Ron in on the agenda, but looks like its got the lowest priority now. I am going to go offline for a while now.
