Hanging in DC

I’m here in DC having given a 4-hour pre-conference session on “Marketing and Fundraising for a Small Shop” at the American Marketing Association’s Nonprofit Marketing Conference. We had a great, lively session.

The best part is I get to be here with my 8-year old son. We’ve gone to the International Spy Museum and the ever popular Air and Space Museum. And tonight, we played Battleship at a very posh restaurant at the Mandarin Oriental.

It used to be that everytime I came to DC, I could feel the power saturating the city. It was heady. And easy to get caught up in.

This time, I sense none of that. So I’m wondering if I’m getting more mature…or more naïve . 🙂

    Cale and I DID go into a flight simulator that allowed us to do a 360 degree turn. Yikes. You should’ve seen Cale’s feet dangling from the ceiling. It was freaky then but we’re both laughing about it now!
