a friend departs
my friend ian moves to chicago in a few days. he and his wife recently had a beautiful baby boy and have decided to move back to where they have more family, and perhaps better schools and life for their child. i will miss ian's insightful comments regarding marketing, sarcarstic sense of humor, the grabbing of drinks at PS-1 and his general good-naturedness. ian made the often stressful work environment easier to manage. i'm sure he will have a similar effect on others at his new job and world in chi-town, but selfishly i wish he could stay. but hey - the internet is a prolific communication tool, so i hope to stay in touch despite the geographical distance. best of luck in this next phase of your life, my friend!
