Spent the morning surfing on Lake Erie. The weather was WILD – intense wind almost caught the board and sailed me into the stratosphere when I walked out of the lake.
Other than that, rain was crazy blinding and the waves were six feet tall, which was pretty exhausting to paddle against, but awesome to ride…as much or as little as I was actually riding them.
While I was having fun, I was also (sort of) doing work if you count my latest piece being published in today’s Spectator. You can check it out here.
And here I have to say a big thanks to the families who shared their time and stories with me – both for this piece and for stories I’ve done in the past.
I imagine that, regardless of the story, it must be hard to just let a stranger waltz into your house/life, towing a photographer, asking personal questions and taking notes. However, I’ve been really lucky with interviews for as long as I’ve been writing. People have always been very generous and amazing and I’m so grateful for it. Thanks!
