My big brother, Mike, was home for four days. He's six years older than me, and went off to college when I was in the sixth grade and has lived back east ever since, so this was like the longest sustained time I've spent with him since.
Interesting to get his perspective on the family, which is both similar and completely different than me.
Took him out to the Badlands east of Bend, which coincidentally had just opened on Sept. 1, for foot traffic.
He's enamored of Sante Fe and plans to retire there, and I figure he got some of his love of the high desert from growing up on Bend.
No real news here, just that I've been in a contemplative mood about family and memory.
