With this, I am grateful for my family, our friends, our collective health and happiness.
I’m also grateful for the “_i_itas” family. And the many faces and facets that make them extraordinary people, versus corporate employees. And today, I thank and recognize our extraordinaries, our…
…veterans who call our agency their work home, the dedicated moms and dads shlepping to and from birthday parties and soccer games, our quirky off-off Broadway producers, our VR tinkerers, our soon-to-be NY Times best selling authors, our advocates for adolescent transgender acceptance, the pumpkin carving experts, the part-time ballet dancers and yoga instructors. Our “big brother, big sister” volunteers, the weekend DIY’ers, the leisure canvas painters, and landscape artists. The marathon runners, the foodie Instagramers, after-work-agency dodge ball players, the cooking enthusiasts, Saturday night stand up comedians, the cross-country Harley-Davidson road warriors. The record-breaking rock climbers in search for the next peak, the late evening poets, the early morning “to do list” makers, the Alaska Salmon fishermen/women, the quiet planner with killer vocals, the mad scientists and musicians, the award-winning BBQ grillers, the just-shy-of-getting on Jeopardy scholastics, the food shelter and soup kitchen volunteers. And those who are a blend of all, many, and other. You know who you are.
Here’s to being better and being interesting — in and outside of work.
