My appologies for the lack of posts. One of Tom's best friends died this week, and it really didn't seem right for me to sit down and write about how much I love my awesome new job.
When one of your peers is suddenly gone forever, it's a fairly major mortality reality check. You want to believe such a thing will never happen, that you'll all grow old together, raise your kids together. But it happens, and you're floored, and dealing with it is something for which nothing can prepare you.
Things will be quiet around here for a few more days, but I'll be back thereafter.
