Yesterday was the memorial service for our dear friend. If it had not been such a sad occasion, I would have been happy to see so many former colleagues and work pals. I hope that in some small way, it was heartening for the family to see how much this person meant to all of us over the years. I wore the pearls that Nerissa gave me as a tiny symbol of these friendly work connections and mementos.
See that gray blur? It's Riley leaping up on to the counter. "Heavier than air flight IS possible!", said a friend today.
