AA everywhere

My AA friend Mahesh and I just had a hilarious back and forth text conversation about baseball. This is normal, despite the fact that he lives in Auckland, New Zealand. We met in my home state of New York. I gave him a tour of Queens, which he still fondly recalls. We met again in Atlanta, Georgia, for the International Convention. We shall meet again, somewhere. 

Alex from Akron usually drops me a line when I’m feeling low, and I always appreciate it. Doris, who provided one of the few meetings I had via phone while living in Colombia, remains one of my biggest cheerleaders. I remember Jeff and John, who took me around Beijing on a Vespa after a meeting, whenever I’m feeling nostalgic.
