I try not to get into too much personal detail on my blog but there are two days I take off every year.Today, February 10th, is one of those days. We celebrate the life of Poppa – Jenny’s father, Beth & Moira’s grandfather, world-class astronomer who visited the South Pole four times, and wonderful curmudgeon – by watching a Star Wars marathon.
I also take off September 11th every year and have a superhero movie marathon in honor of my friend Patrick (those were his favorite films even if the last two he saw were X-Men: Last Stand and Superman Returns. Both of these well-loved and terribly missed parts of our lives passed away from cancer in the past decade.
Always take care of the people you love and remember those that have passed.
