I had been told that a media event was scheduled for this morning. Expecting a couple of journalists, I looked up from my work every time a boat with a pair came up the lagoon. When I saw this boat filled, with humanity, I thought Holy Cow, really? The NBC affiliate of the local television station was there, with a video cameraman, along with reporters and photographers from the local newspaper and the university media and marketing staff. As I walked the length of the dock to greet the approaching boat, the video camera was already trained on me and the 35mm cameras were going off. They came ashore and treated me like a rock star. During several moments the place had the feel of a press conference. And yes, I loved it all! Every last person was so enthusiastic, so engaging. They could have stayed all day, and I was sorry when they left. Every conversation was inspiring.
