Almost ten years into this, I still find it hard to articulate the appreciation I feel for the people I’ve connected to through this blog, their friendship, their generosity and energy, and most of all their passion for making the world a better place for the two fast-growing knuckleheads below and the millions of kids out there like them. Thank you. You inspire me on a regular basis.

I’m closing up shop here and on Twitter and elsewhere for a few weeks. Sincere best wishes for a great season and an amazing New Year. See you in 2011.
