It was one year ago today that Dave handed me my own key to this place and paddled off into the sunset in pursuit of orcas. When he got back three weeks later, the place was still standing, so he asked me to stay on. And I'm still here.
It's turned out to be a remarkable experience -- the first in what's turning out to be an ongoing series of new adventures. Thanks, Dave -- and everyone else who's made me welcome and turned this in one hell of a growth-inducing year.
