If you've never played whirly ball, you're missing out! Had a blast with my clients tonight in Chicago... thankful to have met so many great people doing amazing things in the healthcare information technology arena.

Incredibly thankful that my childhood friends, the Wood family, that emailed me this picture from when I was in high school. My mom was always so beautiful both inside and out. She was easy to pick out of a crowd for her signature gray hair and joyous laughter! Miss her and my Papi so much!!
