So far…so good

So far my trip has been AMAZING! (Note to self: All that anxiety was a waste of time.)

I did not find a hotel, at least not one with a reasonable price attached, so while in Boston I  stayed with the daughter of a good friend of mine–and felt as though I had met up with family. I spent Saturday walking all over Boston, both the Freedom Trail, and Harvard. On Sunday I took a commuter train to Salem so I could see Nathaniel Hawthorne’s birthplace and The House of Seven Gables. (Little did I know I would be walking into Halloween Town.) I’ll tell you more when I finally reach the retreat center and get the pictures from my camera uploaded.

Thank you, thank you to all those people who told me, “Just go — it will be fine!”

    We are all the same before a trip, at least those who tell the truth. But you had to do the preparation with a bad cold, and now I’m in the same boat, wondering if I even want to go to L.A. for Sister Giant, but I know this cold will be over in a few days just as yours was and be glad I’m going where I feel I should be. Nice you had someone to stay with – that’ makes it more fun too and less lonely, even though alone is good too.
