The heading is always “ today is our big day”. It was only a few hours after that email was sent I came into an unfortunate update. Erec had passed away sometime last week. Which means that instead of it begins a big day. It’s now a somber one.
Erec starts by sharing how the first life changing choice for him was to give up college to spend the year skiing. He was afraid of the ramifications that leap could hold. Still he did it, which led him down a path he might not has walked.
