How I Reacted Made Me Money When My 10-Year-Old Son Almost Made Me Late for a Meeting.

Who else knows the feeling of being halfway to the schools only to have to turn around with the following from your child, “Oh no!” I say, “What happened?” 
“I forgot my violin.”

Running Streak Day 102 at Avalon Park and Found Cartas Al Cielo Letters to Heaven

Today, the boys wanted to hike, so I decided on a trail that I have not done in a while at a different section of Avalon Park.  We parked off of the Shep Jones Road and started to run on a semi-muddy root filled hilly path around the grounds.  We found this metallic sphere that seemed out of place in the park.   As we approached the 4 foot diameter sphere, there was a slot and it turned out to be an opening that we can drop a note to Heaven.

Cielo, the Spanish word for ‘sky,’ can also mean “heaven” or “paradise.” Alicia Framis’ Cartas al Cielo is a participatory sculpture that serves as a vessel of communication with those who have no earthbound address.

Park visitors are encouraged to send missives to those with no earthly address via this poetic postbox, and so we took the postcards that were provided and used the little pencils to write a letter.

It's always fun to run with the boys, and the adventures lead us to something new!

Running Streak Day 100 Up in Albany

Today, I celebrated my 100 day of my Running Streak in our State Capitol of New York right after a meeting for State University of New York Purchasing for the Medical Centers from around the State.  It was great to meet all of the Top Procurement Officers!  I ran around the top of the Empire State Plaza and around the Capital Building.
