Wordless Wednesday – PROGRESS!!!

I can’t even describe how inspired I feel today (I’ve been up since 4:30am so it may partially be exhaustion, but I do feel excited).  While my brain and my heart settle a bit… here’s a pic of me last night (microphone not working and video without sound).  I definitely think I was a bit stiff and far away, my chit-chat was the most boring part of the evening, but who cares…. BECAUSE…..

Not a bad pic.  Pretty sure this is when I realized there was no video playing!

MIND.

BLOWN.  

I got to sit next to him and afterward, bombard him with questions.  If my pancreas could smile, believe me, it would have.

More information on all of this later!  And here’s some additional info about Dr. Kowalski:
