Last weekend Boston provided me with many wonderful things to see while Terrence was learning, sharing and perfecting his craft with the International Academy of Mediators ("127 of the best commercial mediators in the world!").  We also found some time to walk the campus of Harvard together, sit and read in the Law School's lounge and have dinner at the Harvard Club.  Alone I took a walk near the university campus and stopped in the "Coop" bookstore for a look around and a quick sandwich.

It was really interesting to be in the places where so much of our nation's beginning took place...and the fact that the air turned cold and the leaves were beginning to change just made it that much more invigorating and exciting.  Those of us who went on the tour of Cambridge and Boston were treated to an articulate and knowledgeable tour guide who threw out a lot of information for us to absorb.

...and by the way, I crossed the finish line of the Boston Marathon!
