Next up were a few very useful travel tips from Mr. Will Luera, artistic Director of ImprovBoston and Mainstage Director at ImprovAsylum. The audience listened on the edge of their seats to a series of unfortunate events during a trip to Korea with his family. Recounting the disastrous diplomatic confusion of Seoul turned out to be a whirlwind but a good story. A grave lesson to readers: if customs ask for a boarding pass, run for your life and get on that plane! (Don’t miss out: http://www.improvboston.com/)

Of course last, but not least, Ms. Peggy Melanson, who left everyone’s jaw hanging a few inches from the ground after sharing a story of a birthday wish gone wrong - all tied in a bright red bow. The historical/ geographical photos of Davis Square “back in the day” added great visuals. Her presence and sarcasm were infectious. Don’t feel left out, more of her great stories can be found online: www.findingcourage.com
Having the opportunity to share your life with strangers and grab the attention of their ears and hearts and minds is precious and a ton of laughs. I hope to see you there next time!
