Yesterday Justin & I wandered the streets of Boston. We lingered over breakfast burritos and egg hole sandwiches at The Friendly Toast, took 472 pictures with a sugar holder in the shape of a cat (I mean, a cat! hilarious.), and walked five blocks out of our way to see Harvard only to discover that we were in fact at MIT. At which point, we realized there wasn’t any danger of us getting in to either.
It was like the “school for gifted people” times a million.
And then last night, thanks to the invitation of our good friend Joe Don, we got the chance to speak to a packed house of Boston photographers and people we are now lucky to call new friends. So many wonderful folks turned out in fact that we had to switch locations at the last minute to the Genesis Church to be able to hold everybody. Yea, a church. And here I was about to give a presentation that calls for me to swear in the first six minutes (don’t worry Mom, I was just repeating what this guy at Best Buy said). Hilarious. I don’t know if it was the swearing in church or the bright lights, but let me tell you….I was sweating up on that stage.
But we got through it. Together. And by the end, I could feel a change brewing in Boston. In all of us. I’m excited about what comes next. And I’m thankful for right now. I’m thankful for Boston.
Y’know even if I never stand a chance of getting into Harvard or MIT.
This was where I demonstrated how to transition from the Robot…..directly into Thriller.
