Where’ve you been?

Two events seem to bring people together: weddings and funerals. In the past 2 weeks, I’ve experienced both my own wedding (or rather, a second wedding reception for our family and friends on the east coast) and the death of a good friend. It’s been a roller coaster.

Thank you for keeping the Warriors alive!
