Hacking into patient medical records can be as easy as tapping into a hospital's unsecured wireless network from a laptop in the parking lot.

Along The Meguro River || Tokyo

With only a short (2 day) visit to Tokyo, I was very fortunate to have a beautiful sunny day to explore the tail end of Hanami and the (already falling) sakura bloom. Tokyo's cherry blossoms started to bloom about 2 weeks ahead of the average and I was a bit worried that I was going to miss it. Thankfully though, there were still plenty of great viewing areas to explore including the Meguro River. 

I spent a couple hours wandering along the river, crossing all the little bridges, and searching for an area to set up my camera. With so many beautiful spots, it wasn't easy to choose but I eventually settled on the one you see here. As I stood there, the wind kicked up, producing strong gusts that caused thousands of cherry blossom petals to rain down all around me. Consequently, the wind also made photography more difficult with the fading light. Let’s just say that it was a frustratingly beautiful problem to have. ;)

This is the resulting photo from "The Moments Between" post I shared on Facebook on Monday. If you would like to compare, you can find that post here: http://on.fb.me/10ykEG1

Story
Introduction
Have moved chronically, dozens (literally!) of times, including 15 years overseas in the Middle East, Asia and Canada. (Love Canada!) Kinda odd, but it's an inherited condition in my case. I carry Epi-Pens for allergies to a handful of foods, including nuts, the mustard family and peaches. Was my 80-year-old aunt's caregiver when I was 30. Worked in three intensive-care units -- burn, surgical and thoracic -- in university. Have experienced universal health care as well as private pay. Lucky and grateful to be healthy.
