Offline for a Week or So

I got one of those calls nobody wants to get – my brother Martin has been killed in a terrible accident in Thailand so I’m heading that way and plan on tuning out to focus on family. He was the shining light of our family and imagining the universe without him is hard to comprehend.

When times like these strike you become deeply thankful. Especially for my brilliant wife (in so many ways) and Sophia and Zach. Figuring out how to get me and family members to Thailand in one hour is an amazing feat… We love you!

And hey, you appreciate people who go out of their way without any skepticism. American Express Platinum figured out how to get me to Thailand the fastest way possible and made it happen. And to Qantas who treated my Mum like royalty, held the flight for her, drove her around the airport, upgraded her without her asking and escorted her through customs… You are heroes!
