Everything Changes

Saw Andy off today. Took one last walk around the Institute, after all the furniture had been removed. Reflected on how everything changes.

Many, many things have changed in the past month. I've said goodbye to a number of friends this week, knowing that I too will be moving on soon enough.

Perhaps a year ago, I would've reflected on how hard it is to say goodbye to those friends, to our hangout spots (the Institute, heh), to the things we did together. Now ... I merely reflect on its inevitability. Things change. It's a Good Thing(tm).

I'm happy for Joe and Andy as they head out into the world, taking steps toward where they want to be. I'm grateful for the opportunity I had to get to know them, and honored to call them my friends. I'm sure we'll stay in touch.


I don't reflect on myself, or my relationships, nearly often enough, I think. I analyze them a lot, but that's not the same thing. But in reflecting on them now, I realize that I'm grateful for all of them. I am honored to have you all in my life, in one way or another. Even when we get upset, or fight, or engage in rousing debates, I'm grateful for that, too, because it teaches me something new.

Thank you.
