I’m terribly sorry to have to report that my best friend, paddle partner, husband, and love, Vladimir Brezina, died Tuesday, December 13, at 7:20 PM, after surviving for 2.5 years with cancer.
My heart breaks, and a light has gone out in the world. But I have vowed to embody Vlad’s spirit of generosity, love of adventure and exploration, and appreciation of beauty in all forms. It will never be the same without him, but what he gave to the world will live on.
I plan to post a proper obituary in the days (maybe weeks) to come. And I plan to continue WindAgainstCurrent, but alas the quality of the photography will never be the same, as I don’t have Vlad’s brilliant eye and editing patience.
