After a few weeks of incredible movement, I took a great pause for myself to rest and reflect today. It’s been a marvelous time, filled as much by old faces as familiar ones, all of which have signaled towards a great future for us in the days and years ahead.
But it’s been a tumultuous path to get here. Great work takes great sacrifice, and as the future looms, so does the prospect of…more work.
It’s amazing, to realize that work is what we’re somehow made for. Whether it’s to work to serve another cup of coffee, or to work to make the next great technology, or to work to simply get out of bed, the world has been built by the act of people reaching from within to make great things outside of them.
I am as grateful as I am humbled by the process; we are bringing up the world around us as much as we’re bringing up the world after us, just like those before us.
With this in mind, perhaps it isn’t just a trivial thing to greet the world again tonight, or to bid it a good night.
Instead, maybe bidding one more “good night” is one of the greatest achievements of a life that’s still here, the greatness of which is rivaled only by the wonderful act of getting up to bid another “good morning”.
I don’t know, but I guess there’s only one way to find out.
Good night L.A.,
