On this day I did something that scared the crap out of me. Or “expanded the comfort zone” per se. We held a Meet-the-Neighbors AND Meet-a-Candidate party. And it was all thrown together last minute. So considering all those things it was a lovely success and I can hardly wait to do it again. (But not too soon. Will have to clean up the house again by then…)
We have such an international community here (in the People’s Republic of Cambridge MA), it thrills me to see everyone show where they’re from on our glorious world map:
Another thrill was how well the “Kids Movie Room” worked out; inglorious as our dump room is, the kids don’t care. Throw some pillows in there, pull something up on an old laptop (original “Adams Family” in this case), put a label on it and make it so!
Finally, never short on words, I wrote some down and then read them aloud… after a few false starts. (Naturally I had to silence the children in order to give a speech entailing the importance of listening to children.)

And that’s how you do THAT, apparently.
Until next time…
