Day 53, April 20.
Last night I learned that baseball season had started again in the U.S. I love baseball. So since I’m not there for the opening of Boston Red Sox (my team) season I decided to watch a 30-30 movie about the year 2004, the year the Red Sox came from being down 3-0 to come back and beat the New York Yankees in the championship series 4-3. Before that, they always found a way to lose. After that, I knew anything was possible! I absolutely loved re-living that!
Denise and her daughter dropped me off at the train station, where I met Teal, who had arranged all my train travel and my Senior Rail Pass for the UK (entitling me to a 30% discount on UK train travel). What an incredible gift that was for me in exchange for a coaching session. It was great being with Teal.
Then I was off to Birmingham, where Jacqueline Bennett picked me up and brought me to the beautiful village of Mosely to meet with Janet Lindsay (and later Jaqueline’s fiancée, Rob) for an informal discussion that was so wonderful, so full of laughs, and so deep that it almost felt too good to be true. It was another of those incredibly special moments I have had on this trip.
