There are lessons everywhere. When I was living on Maui…..circa. 1994, I worked on Front Street in Lahaina in a shop called ‘Endangered Species’. The business went through many employees. One of my favorite people was Brian from Northern California. We would only work together for a few months, as young Brian was a traveller and he would continue his adventures after just a short time in Hawai’i. He left the islands and continued to South America and Alaska and back to California….and so on. When you consider we’d only been friends for a few short months, the way he reached out was very touching to me. Periodically, I’d receive a communique’ from him…of sorts. He didn’t have stationary, or a postcard, envelopes, anything like that…..he did have an imagination. He tore off a piece of an ordinary cardboard box and write on it put a stamp on it (sometimes) and send it. A few of them made it to me. He just wanted to reach out. The lessons…….friendship, value, and humor…..I remember you, sweet Brian.
