Some of you may have noticed my lack of posting for the last couple of weeks and while I probably won't get back to normal posting for another week or so. I wanted to explain my absence.
The last couple weeks have been a whirlwind of change, mostly very positive and good change (which I will explain later) But there was one change in my life that has been more difficult, and that was the passing of my grandfather. To say he was an extraordinary man would be an understatement. He had a life so full of creativity, ingenuity, adventure and curiosity it would put some of the greatest minds in history to shame (in my humble opinion). A scientist and inventor who started his own business while raising a family and traveling to far off places, such as Ethiopia, Greece or just camping in the boundary waters. He never sat still, or stopped learning and always had some new anecdote or invention to discuss with anybody who would listen. I'm continually impressed by him and hope the stories of my life will someday equal his. He will be missed.
I also just wanted to mention quickly the positive changes that have been happening in my life. I got a new job in San Francisco and am moving next week. I will of course be posting more about this major upheaval, which I'm beyond excited about in upcoming weeks, but that is one of the reasons why I have been so busy, too busy to post.
Below are just a few pictures of my grandpa.
