Last night my wife and I woke up to a strange cracking sound coming from the kitchen, like a clumsy intruder shuffling things at 4am. Just about 20 minutes later nothing was left of our house, the home-office, computers, violins, guitars, books or anything at all. We got out with kids a minute before it would be too late. Thank you, guardian angels!
Boons family is safe, healthy and supported by overwhelming love and care from friends, community and family. We live at a very special part of the world where help arrives before you have ask, and more than you would dare to wish for. It’s incredibly humbling and teaching.
Now, why do I post it here? Well, somehow through all these years Boonex community is like extended family for us and we wanted to share where we are at.
Boonexers all work from home. Our “office” is out there, in the cloud or in the air, if you will. Fire can’t burn or scald Boonex. It can, however, set off one of the boonexers (in this case - me) a bit from being able to attend to things in full pace. So, please don’t be too upset if I don’t reply for a few days. We’ve got to give the kids a good wash, have some sleep and reconnect the cables in some shack we’ll call home for the time being.
Meanwhile, the rest of the team is there for you at firstname.lastname@example.org, as usual.
Lessons learned - keep your kids close to you, fire alarms checked, doors open and files in the cloud. Be nice to your community and help people in need. No matter how secure you feel - it may all crumble overnight. Treasure every moment you have with your loved ones.
