You know Sir, a lot of folks no doubt wish you had just stayed in your cubicle, continuing to entertain us with your blog, perhaps publishing that novel someday. A lot of folks would have liked that.
Might as well try to tame the wind.
You went out doing what you loved.
Soaring up into the bright sky on laughter-silvered wings.
Wheeling, soaring and swinging high in the sunlit silence.
Lifting up to heights an eagle would not dare.*
We miss you Lex.
We'll see you again someday.
Ave atque vale
