Greetings from Wisconsin. Yikes, am I tired. Yesterday was a long day full of meetings and new people and chat and smiles and laughter. All good, but when I got home last night, I was on sensory overload so I couldn’t get to sleep for a long time. A lot gets packed into a short amount of time. I’m trying to be charming, funny, intelligent and wise. All the time.
My dear friend, who was the head of the training program at Boston University and was my boss, is here. He recommended me for the job. Yesterday, on my way to the table that continually had a spread of food and munchies for all of us, I saw him. Big hugs, much laughter and stories were exchanged. Last night at dinner, we continued our conversation and when he dropped me off at my motel, we were still talking. I love this guy. He’s worked with my husband many times and knew Don before I did. He is generous beyond measure, a loyal friend and colleague. He will be working here this summer, but alas, not until the latter half of the season and I will be gone by then. What a joy it has been to spend time with him.
I’ve met some wonderful people and I look forward to getting to know them better. Even though we are in the midst of gray March days here, I can see how lovely it will be in May. The outdoor theater is built into a hill, surrounded by trees. The surrounding countryside is beautiful. Today I have free time, so I plan to walk around this charming small town.
I didn’t bring my camera. You’ll have to wait until I return in May. I will be heading home early tomorrow. One night at MHC and then I’m off to Boston for 5 days. The camera will be going along on that trip.
Missing Mockingbird Hill Cottage. Missing husband. Missing these little scamps:
