the LIST

Do I know you? One man's attempt at a lifelong head count. 

NOTE: If you think I might have a photo of you—most likely at least one great photo of you—don't be afraid to ask me to post it ( along with a brief entry about how I know you. And if I've met or known you but don't have any photo evidence, feel free to send along YOUR favorite photo of you. (I'm fascinated by what that slideshow might look like.)

The guy you see before you is one of the best human beings I know. Which makes what he's going through right now doubly tragic. Just over 2 1/2 years ago, Edmund's sister-in-law murdered Edmund's niece and nephew, Calyx and Beau, who I had met back in '03 at Edmund's wedding in Vermont. The reason I decided to put Edmund's photo up today is because he showed up on my radar this afternoon when I noticed an article on Facebook about how the trial had started and Edmund's brother, Parker, was testifying. Can't imagine what these guys have gone through—and are reliving all over again. Our thoughts are with Edmund and his family today.
