Gervase Markham has died. A huge loss for the #FLOSS world.
As always, it is our task to take all that was beautiful, kind, and meaningful about him and weave it into the tapestry of our futures in such a manner to honor him and give added meaning to our lives.
Such is the nature of life, love, death, and life after loss.
I love summer in #Portland.
