I've just arrived at a corporate retreat here in Heeze, a quiet village in the Netherlands where I'll be involved in some meetings over the next few days. My journey here involved so many twists, turns and stops along the way that I'm, indeed, in somewhat of a "Haze." After arriving at Schiphol Airport early this morning, I paid a quick visit to my friend, Marijke, who had a terrific breakfast waiting for me at her picture perfect home in Amsterdam. Marijke declined to be photographed for my blog based on a controversial incident nearly two years ago when some imaginative readers commented that her dress resembled a marijuana leaf. After breakfast, I took a tram to the Amsterdam Central train station and made my way to Heeze, a two hour ride through green pastures and cheerful meadows. Tonight, I'm having dinner with some colleagues at a restaurant called Koffer which, appropriately enough, means "Suitcase" in Dutch ...!
