Happiness Is…

Weekly evenings with Jay.

A lot’s gone on in the past twelve years.

Hopes and upheaval. Disappointments. Triumphs. In work, relationships, parenting and health.

And through it all, there’s been a weekly evening with Jay.

Sanity. Sage advice. Laughter. Perspective.

Whatever the week brings, my evening with Jay makes it better. Those evenings make me better.

I think sometimes about our 18-years-younger selves. Saying our first hellos. With 7,550 km and ten provinces of cycling ahead of us. And all we never dreamed about those next 18 years.

And I think of the years ahead of us now. The venting and celebrating of our sixty-something selves.

And that makes me smile.

Thank you, Jay.
And thank you, Mark, for making those evenings possible. All these years.
