I am in Santa Barbara right now for a conference on homeless medicine. Tonight was a great night of friendship. Went out to dinner with friends of my cousins who live in town…real “salt of the earth” type of people that you could spend infinate amounts of time with an still enjoy being with them. My cousins are that way too. AFterwards they dropped me off at a club where others from the conference were meeting. Great latin music in a 6 piece band, with one of my closest friends (who helped organize the conference), and two other real neat folks. I was in heaven being surrounded by good music, great friends and a bottle of red wine. I will remember this night for a long, long time.
