Boston Here I Come: Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy

Today, just seemed like it needed some Ren & Stimpy, because I’m going to Boston. Don’t worry, I’m not leaving you guys without stuff to entertain you. There are some pretty sweet videos scheduled to post next week. Have I mentioned I’m going to Boston? Obviously, I’m not excited about this at all.  Fenway, Fanueil Hall, Salem, Freedom Trail…

‘Til next time,

This Is Boston

Lately, Boston has been on my mind, for a lot of reasons.  With the anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombing yesterday, I’ve been thinking about how grateful I am that those I know who ran in the marathon escaped without physical injuries, even though the tragedy has become part of them.  Which led to wondering how people can really think violence is a good resolution for…anything.

That’s when I came upon this image taken from the International Space Station last year, and it is just breathtaking.  I get to see that up close and in-person next month (that would be the city, not the space station…although if you can make the space station thing happen, I wouldn’t turn it down!)  I’m so grateful that I have the opportunity and the resources that I’ll get to visit a city that played such an integral role in the creation United States.  A lot of history can be found in those streets, and I can’t wait to take it in.  The countdown has begun…

‘Til next time,

Jessica
