Massachusetts by the Numbers

1 Awesome experience with Diane
2 Sibling visits
3 Massages
4 Manninos
5 Teaching opportunities
6 Hundred miles
7 Lobsters
8 Really good friends

Tomorrow I leave Massachusetts and head for Michigan to see Eileen and her family. This has been such a special part of the trip, and not only for the opportunity to hone my teaching skills and learn from Diane. I have found a very dear friend in Sunny and I have been lucky enough to know Linda, Terri, Terri, Danielle, CJ, Jodi and Sam. Each has been really special in his or her own way.

I’ve got to spend a little time with siblings, and visit my mom’s old haunts, thus removing, some might say, some haunting of my own.

A very productive trip. Yesterday after leaving Terri Almquist’s house and heading west back to Sunny’s, I felt a little sad. The light in the sky was much lower, indicating the end of summer (and it’s been quite cold in the evening – summer here lasted about 2 weeks), and it was a literal turning point. I’ve finished going east, for the most part, and will head west again.

We’ll see what this next leg of the adventure brings. There’s LOTS of good things out there, tomorrow will bring more.
