And Then

Last month, my wife's uncle died in a tragic accident in LA when the bicycle he was using to get lunch was hit by a truck. At the memorial service his daughter relayed a very touching story. 

She said her dad (who was her best friend) called every day to talk. But instead of opening the call with the customary "How are you" or "What's going on", her dad always opened the conversation with "And then?" Her father viewed each conversation as a continuation of the last, and what pained her the most was that there were to be no more "and thens". I cried. 

Since then I've thought a lot about how similar this is to our life's endeavors. We pour our heart and soul into our work and it becomes something we love and cherish. But even the challenges we work on today will one day become "and thens" as we move on to the next. 

Today I'm announcing my departure from Google after almost 8 years.

I have been incredibly fortunate to work with the amazing people of Google. I don't believe there is a more talented and passionate collection of people anywhere else. And I'm overwhelmed when I think about the leadership of +Larry Page and what he empowered me to do while at Google. From starting Google I/O, to being responsible for all mobile applications, to creating Google+, none of this would have happened without Larry's encouragement and support.

I'm also forever in debt to the Google+ team. This is a group of people who built social at Google against the skepticism of so many. The growth of active users is staggering, and speaks to the work of this team. But it doesn't tell you what kind of people they are. They are invincible dreamers. I love them. And I will miss them dearly.

Finally, thank you to all those who I've met on Google+. The community here has been so supportive that I don't even know how to say thank you. You all make Google+. Without you, this social network wouldn't exist. Your support for Google+, and for me personally is something I will never forget. 

But, now is the time for a new journey. A continuation. An "and then". I am excited about what's next. But this isn't the day to talk about that. This is a day to celebrate the past 8 years. To cry. And smile. And to look forward to the journey yet to come.

And then....

Beautiful ballpark. If you ever get a chance to visit, you should definitely do it. The facade of the ballpark alone will take you back in time, but stepping inside is like a time machine:-) While the Cubs winning is always great, it's not necessary to in order to have a great time there. It's located within a neighborhood, and it's party time all the time:-)

Great facility. Great way to spend an evening work the family as well. Awesome fireworks shows, too.

The building appears to be located on a very large hill. In reality, the hill is part of giant city landfill, directly behind it. It appeared seedy & old but after discussing this with the manager, he assured us we were in no harm or danger. It's located next to a very busy & loud freeway, as well as the airport. After the ballgame we attended, we arrived back at our rooms late that night to find one of the pillows were stained (see photo). Will not rebook this motel.

While the condo had plenty of these to do such as pools, spas, gym, and prime location on the beach & many other attractions, or actual room was horrible. Peeling paint, wallpaper, broken glass & mirrors, dust bunnies the size of wolverines inside air vents, & a really bad smell coming from inside the water heater & AC unit closet. Also, the AC was down:/
