Had a send a note to tell you I'm thinking of you and hope you're well.
Heard the news at work late yesterday (Wednesday). I don't know the details
of this but it was a tough call, I'm sure, and I'm in your corner all the
way. As I've told you, you have made all of us so proud and I love you very
much. I know I'll learn more about all that's transpired but wanted you to
know I'm thinking of you. This has undoubtedly been a period of much
thought, soul searching and reflection.
I'm going to get you up to Alaska, yet. Tried to interest Jeffrey
during our January meeting. The region is just gorgeous! A Chicago Federal
Appeals Court judge, of all people---a gentleman by the name of Frank
Easterbrook---has just in the past 6 months bought the condo unit next to
mine in Girdwood. Had a chance to meet him for the first time when I was up
in June. His brother, Greg, has authored a phenomenal and, perhaps most
remarkably, balanced book on the environment. To have that subject
addressed in a balanced way is an anomaly in this day and age, and yet this
guy has managed to do it. I'm still wading through it in those moments I get
a chance to sit down and actually read a book. 35 beautiful wooded acres
have just come on the market in Girdwood--something I thought would never
happen---and I've made a bid for them. We'll see. Will let you know how
Love you, Jeff, and please be safe and well through all of this. Say
hello to Rebecca for me!
