Yesterday, I finished speaking at Neumann College in Philadelphia mid-afternoon and was able to catch an early evening flight to Boston for tonight’s speech at Brandeis University. The result was me having most of the day open today in Boston. My dear friend, Karen Brady, came to visit me from Providence. Karen has been a blessing in my family’s life for over 8 years. She had never been on the ocean and so we went Whale Watching. The 3 hours was a blast, especially trying to do goofy moves into the wind on top deck of the boat (we could barely stay standing at times). Here is a picture of Karen in the forefront with the whales behind her. She stayed with me all through the day and then came to hear me speak at Brandeis. She even stuck around afterwards and got a bite to eat with me at my hotel. Thank you, Karen, for being such a dear friend!!
