Brent is home

Brent is home. Just in time, too, since I was pretty much sick of my own company. He came back better than he left, which is pretty amazing, since he was no slacker before.

He spent a lot of his Burning Man time working with emergency services doing dispatch. Eagle Scout Brent loves hierarchies and uniforms and helping people. He adores his radio. His brain likes the challenge of directing lots of moving parts at once. And, you know, it was all out in the middle of the dirt and art and chaos of the playa.

Even as exhausted as he was when he finally arrived home, he had the spark of excitement in him. He’s calmer, more cheerful, happier than he’s been in a long time.

Right work is a magical thing. The next adventure is finding that magic in regular life.
