It has really been a pleasure assisting you and if it’s not too much to ask from you, moving forward, always see things in a positive light. I know this may seem out of the blue but I just want to share with you how great life is when you look at things positively.

Inspired by Dan Romero, who was apparently inspired by Jason Kottke, I constructed a list of all the cities in which I spent at least a night in 2013. Curious, I went back to my records to see how my 2012 stacked up. Technically, I visited more cities in 2012, but that was inflated by trips to Israel and Argentina.

Matt and Morgan joined my dad and me for breakfast last week in Chicago. What a treat!

He has two male teachers so this is pretty huge.
