My niece Jenny is getting married today in Santa Barbara, California. My thoughts are with her and Greg and the whole family. Wish I was there.
In the meantime, my friend Kim wrote that her son Brian and his friend Matt are walking from Oakland, California, to Portland Oregon, to support "causes dear to their hearts" - "Brian to help fund his father's elementary school outdoor education program that was cut from the budget and Matt to support his friend Stephanie who has breast cancer." We got the e-mail while in Chennai and haven't been feeling terribly strong since. But, today, finally, we got out for our walk in support of these young men. We didn't go far, lucky to be walking.
