You have no idea how many times I've typed and re-typed this. Nothing sounds right.
A member of my immediate family passed away this weekend. This perfunctory blog post is insufficient, but I feel like I know many of you so I wouldn't have felt right about saying nothing. We have not yet published the obituary, which is partly why I'm not sharing any details. I'm also trying to be delicate and respectful, but I quite frankly have no idea what is or isn't appropriate.
It's a heartbreaking time for my family. I just wanted you to know that I'm going to be a bit absent from the blog this week.
