Dear E,

So, I estimate I’ve been given about twelve years to spend with you before you’ll begin expressing your independence by wanting to hang out more often with friends and less often with me. That’ll be ok with me, because I know it’s part of growing up and becoming a man. But, Just so you know, I’m in for as much time as I can spend with you, as many conversations as we can have, as much as we can do and as far as we can dream.

Dan Dawson and I went to the Cool Products Expo at Stanford University in Palo Alto. Any time I get to see electric cars, especially those that can out drag Ferraris, I’ll take it. Yep, definitely cool.
