goodbye Ev, go cause trouble

Ev’s leaving. ::sigh:: I will very much miss him, but i’m soooo glad he’s going. No, no, nothing like that. When i first met Ev, i instantly adored him. He has that passionate scattered attention that i very much recognize. He’s hyper-curious and in love with his work, with his life. His baby grew up and things became stable, procedural, functional. He needs to be out exploring. He needs to chase down a new adventure. And i’m sooo in awe that he realized this and decided to go, even though it meant walking away from his baby.

I wish you the very best, Ev!
