Wow! Toby,
The FuuSui (Feng Shui) 風水 set up of your house seems perfect. Having windows and mirrors in just the right places. Reflecting natural sunlight on important displays within the house,....
The vibes are totally synchonized it seems.
Learn from Nature, Live by Natural Laws. Simply Beautiful.

Don't know if we'd call it "Feng Shui", Norman, but it is pretty cool the way the light hit that picture yesterday morning. It was by pure accident as Maiko only last week moved the placement of that mirror and it really had nothing to do with morning sunlight. ;) Anyway, we did do a lot of studies on room placement, importance on some areas more than others and whatnot. We love the end result. Get over here and see it for yourself, willya? We'd love to have you. We still have some good Seattle coffee to share with you to make you feel like you are back "home".
