Once in a life time you have a client that you just don’t get along with. At first you think things are manageable but things go sour and no matter how hard you try it never gets better. It’s not the fault of either. It’s just one of those things.
Then once in a life time you have a client that changes everything. Once in a life time you meet someone that is so dynamic, so artistic, so engaging, so maniacal, so passionate yet at the same time so ‘normal’, who can put on a face that is congruent to what people think he should be, he challenges the boundaries of your own perceptions about what is available in for use as an individual in the world.
We are going to call him the Maverick.
On and off, for circumstances we could not control, the better part of three years we were isle-in, like a villain, on penicillin with the Maverick.
It was a glorious time.
When we met Mavs, we had no idea that he was ‘renting a womb’ as he put it, to have children with his partner.
We eventually met his partner, his wonderful children and enjoyed the company of his warm loving family.
He would bring us simple yet thoughtful and caring gifts from America.
Once he said, ‘Guys, don’t listen to me. There’s a saying ‘Get your hands off my ears. I know what I’m doing.’
How do yo not love a guy like that?
If you are reading this, Maverick we miss this time we had together. So here is a video in honor of and that begs the inside joke from.
It’s the Isle. Do you know what time it is? 😀
