It does seem unusual, given how frequently he used to crop up in my feed. On that topic, whatever happened to Saydrah?

I saw that she stopped by a few months ago to let us know she had moved to the LA area, I think. But let's see what she's up to... Hey Saydrah, how goes it?

Hey! BTW mk your notification emails are consistently getting spammed in Zimbra -- good fortune I checked my junk on a whim today.

I'm in LA, working for the first time since 2009 at a purpose-driven company, and it feels great. I'm a person who can derive a greater purpose from almost anything (a lawyer friend told me once, "You must believe your client to be a good advocate," and I took that to heart along with Indra Nooyi's advice on assuming positive intentions) but it's great to be in a place where everyone is on that page. I've found it very easy to live in LA so far. The weather is of course so fantastic that people poke fun at it for being so great all the time. The people are friendly. (Really, they are. LA stereotypes have been exaggerated significantly.) There's always something to do. ALWAYS.

Having a blast. But busy as hell growing a community of my own, so I've only been around others sparingly!

Thanks, Saydrah.

I'm glad to hear that things are going well for you in LA. If we have a meetup out there, I am going to give you a shoutout.

Hey! Back at ya. That was a nice surprise to hear from you Saydrah. It's evident from your comment that you are happy and doing well. Being a part of a "purpose driven company," that you can "believe in" seems to make all the difference.

Good luck building that community.

I have to ask (because I always do), how is your uncle doing with the bees?
