I write you with a heavy heart. Saturday, January 28, I had to bury another young family member gone too soon. R.I.P. Larnie Whitfield, one of my favorite crazy-ass cousins. We all miss you dearly, brother, and we know you'll have everyone in heaven in stitches from the moment you arrive. Sleep well…

In happier news, we are still beating up the road and bruising speakers, city to city, as usual. Last week's run was from NYC to LA to Toronto to Montreal, back to back. Physically demanding to say the least, but too good a time to complain about being tired. Salute Danny Holloway, Carol Kwak, Rahel Tesfal, and my partner in crime at Props, Akalepse, for an incredible week of partying and networking.
