Omar, thank you for your kind and generous words today. And thank you for meeting me for lunch at Kramer's in DC. I want you to know that I get as much out of our friendship as you do. Your open, questing, and poetic spirit speaks to me. I am honored to be on this journey with you, my friend. I am eager to see what unfolds, unfold. I am here.

Thank you for introducing me to new poets and poetry. I love this poem by Kabir. It makes me think of the magical realism of Gabriel Garcia Marquez in all of his his novels, but especially his best ones: One Hundred Years of Solitude and Life in the Time of Cholera. What a treat you have in store if you haven't yet read these!

And sorry about that parking ticket. Damn!

Omar, your persistence to keep this going is inspiring. I think showing up is undervalued. The way you try new things with a goal of always learning really resonates with me. Looking forward to what’s next 😀
