Memory remains

There are a million stories. This is one.

The day was very much like today. The air crisp, the sky a brilliant blue, and the water sparkling and bright.

I boarded the ferry from Rowes Wharf to the airport. I was meeting two colleagues for dinner at one of the airport hotels.

We greeted each other warmly. These were difficult times for our business, and we felt a kinship that can come when facing a tough struggle together. The dinner was a nice respite. The following day we would be flying to Los Angeles.
