We had a lovely, low-key, totally-lame Labor Day weekend mapped out. Writing, reading, working out, watching movies. It was going to be wonderfully slothful.
And then a sweet family member passed away, While his health had been up and down for a while, the last time I had seen him he seemed re-energized. We had a great conversation, and I was reminded what a gentle, loving man he was.
We're headed to Pennsylvania tomorrow, to honor his memory, to surround his wife and sisters and children and grandchildren with love and support.
Here's a toast to changes of plan, to supporting loved ones, to remembering friends when they're gone and making time for them while we're all here.
