This is Julie. She’s from Georgia. We started our new jobs on the same day and I’m constantly amazed at her courage. She’ll hop in the car or on a bus or a train and go anywhere. She’s not reckless – actually she’s well organized and well informed – but she just doesn’t let uncertainty slow her down. On the day we took this photo, she had hopped on a bus from Erlangen to Herzo, then hopped in my car for a trip …somewhere. We hadn’t really agreed on what we were going to do and when I picked her up I had misplaced the addresses for IKEA and another destination. So we navigated to IKEA without our sat-nav, then to Nuremberg for a little window shopping and dinner at an outdoor cafe. Since then we’ve been to Koln and she joined my brutal German spin class. While everyone else was unfolding their sweaty bodies from the spin bikes, she was sprinting the mile to the bus station.

I think she’s going to have a very interesting life.

There is no doubt that meeting you will be a great addition to her interesting life.

I’d say you’re equally courageous.
