Finally, we had a sunny Saturday in Vancouver, where I was free to go for a bike ride and explore coffee shops. C and I met up at The Narcissus at Powell and Commercial:


I had the cortado, and a chocolate croissant (they didn’t have the almond ones available). The pastries obviously were not baked in house, so I asked the barista where they were actually from. The Korean barista took a few seconds to undestand my question, and replied in broken English, “Cadeaux, downtown.”


The coffee shop was fairly empty at 1030AM, very quiet, with music playing unobtrusively in the background. The coffee was made from beans roasted by Agro, and it was very flavourful. The croissant was fresh, and I’ll be back to check out their sandwiches (there was a prosciutto one). They even serve beers from 33 Acres! This would be a great place to work and be inspired to work.

I really appreciated the peace and quiet today, after all hell broke loose this week in the office. It's just another rock that we'll jump over though. Will Smith said it best:

“It don’t matter whose fault it is that something is broken if it’s your responsibility to fix it.”

When there’s a problem, there’s no point in pointing fingers, laying blame, but at what point does it become a liability to keep throwing bandaids at the cut? Let’s just fix the problem. Let’s nip it in the bud, get rid of the root cause. Let’s MacGyver the shit out of this.
