Bill. I managed not to get a photo of all of us.
Spending Veterans Day with 3 of my favorite vets:
Steve Willis
Gene Forrister
Bill McFarland

Three of the Air Force guys I originally met at or just after the last big anti–Vietnam War protest in D.C. in 1971. We have been fundamentally connected ever since. Bill had moved dozens of times in the last 35 years & only resurfaced a couple of months ago, so seeing him was incredibly wonderful. We are still & always The House.

I'm the only one who still has a shirt from the Air Force. It was Sam's, given me by Teresa.

This most meaningful time in my life remains the hardest to talk about. It's in many ways the air that I breathe & the eyes I look out of. They create the light & they reflect the light.
