Meet n Greek
I am part of a Greek speaking meet-up group in Boston, and they've only hosted one other event since I've been a member (which I could not attend). But tonight they were having a cookout in Cambridge, and I thought, why not... I'm missing Greece already, and anyone who can feed into my obsession is a blessing!
The short story is that it was so fun. There was only a small turnout, but I made friends with new people who also love Greek (and speak way better than me, except for one guy who doesn't speak it at all), and there was food and even some dancing! I tried to convince them to come to RI for the Greek festival(s) here, and I think I may have succeeded. Fingers crossed!
Also from today: I had coffee with a fellow writer who wanted to "pick my brain" because she thinks the things I've done/am doing are admirable. It was so flattering and humbling because I don't deserve to be placed in such high esteem We did, however, have a great conversation, and I'm so happy to have gotten to know her better!
Way to go today, Life. You rocked.
