I’ve been back from my Synthetic Division road trip for a bit now, and bid farewell to Josh last weekend as he flew back to California. So great to spend two full weeks with one of my best friends on this mortal journey we’re all undertaking.  I’d write more about our adventures if I weren’t editing together a video of our adventures right now, so look for that on here soon...

In the meantime, a wonderful restaurant, Orzo, here in my hometown (Charlottesville, VA) is doing a benefit dinner for the local clinic where positoids like me get their care.  The full information on the event is below (contact Pam Bickley via email PAB2U@hscmail.mcc.virginia.edu to reserve a spot)- there are 30 tickets left, so don’t hesitate if you’re in the area, enjoy great food and want to help the cause.

Positively Yours,
