Day 64: Boston Freedom Rally Happening Today, Tomorrow, & Sunday

19693546_10155606514107249_5243542851646532417_oI’m catching up and preparing for the Boston Freedom Rally which kicked off moments ago on the Boston Common! I’ve had a very hard time with focus and getting ready for this event. And I learned a valuable lesson this week…when you’re a Momma…DO NOT COUNT ON HAVING ANY TIME TO PREPARE FOR ANYTHING! USE WHAT TIME YOU HAVE WHEN YOU HAVE IT. Your little may need all of that time and you will be limping to the finish line.

So anyway…I will be there and I will do the very best I can! But folks, I gotta go. Gotta get back to that prep!

Here’s an article that discusses the music act lineup!

Here’s the Education Village Schedule – That’s where you’ll find me!  Hope to see you there! As always dear readers – much love, many hugs. Namaste <3

P.S. I’ll be speaking for a few minutes on the Parkman Bandstand – Stage 2 on Sunday, September 17th at 2:50pm.
