The next day i met up with some of the other friends and had lunch with Pam, a singer and vocal teacher at Harvard
. The day was beautiful and Pam's company was great. A funny and generous woman, we spent hours sitting outside sharing teaching stories and our love of music. After lunch, I met up with two more friends, Kate and Ryan, and spent the rest of the day people watching, walking around Harvard square, drinking and eating great food, and eventually making our way to the river where we spent 4th of July. Boston Pops + Charles river + beautiful night with new friends + fireworks = perfect night. A special thanks to Kate and Ryan for their time, humor, and comrodery. Independance day just woulndt have been the same without them.
The next two days are a blur of friends, food and Michelle. I love Boston. A managable city filled with smart people, smart things to do and see, and great food. And I have to give one last shout to Michelle, who I'm so proud of for never comprimissing her wishes, beliefs, and who will be a Harvard graduate with a masters in theatre by the next time I see her. My Mitch is good.
What can I say? Boston is a great city. It's even better when you can share it with great old friends and wonderful new ones. Michelle Mount and I have been close ever since the days of our childrens theatre experiences at the playhouses of Roswell. She has since then grown to be an even more amazing person that lights up a room with her smile and bounding energy. And that's on a bad day. Without her, my time in Bean town would have been fun, but she and her friends made it a feast of laughter and excitment. I meet some of Michelle's friends the first night at a impromtue dinner party we had. I cooked stir-fry and we all drank and got to know each other. By the next day, Michelle's upstairs roommate Jack and I, hit the town for a 20 mile bike ride. Six hours later, my legs were nicely toasted and my head was filled with Boston history. Jack was great to hang out with. He's a history guy, so anything of interest he knew about was topic as we flew all over the city. Thanks Jack.
