From Far Corners of a Sphere

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, and I’ll admit that I’m drawn back to the page for a combination of reasons.  This Friday marked two occasions, one much sadder and more important than the other: a series of terrorist attacks in Paris that shook the world, and Northeastern’s 10th (and my final) Husky Hunt.…
