Georgetown University delights

Telescope
My address to the Georgetown commencement can be streamed here.

It was a wonderful event. My thanks to everyone who made it possible, from those who invited me to those who treated me like royalty. Unlike some honorees at some other schools, I did not get a zillion dollar honorarium; Instead, I got a box of "Fleurir hand grown chocolates" which was much, much better! (Unlike a check, I get to keep the chocolates... on my waistline, alas.)

Today I'm going on a picnic with my 2-year-old goddaughter Corinne, along with her parents (and five year old sister) and her grandmother, whom I have known since high school. And the weather in DC continues to be beautiful.

I'll admit to being unclear on some of the finer points of the theology, but I'm pretty sure that the weather we're having here right now counts as a miracle.

I had a lovely report from my man on the ground (or in the chorale) at Georgetown. I got a delightful precis of the speech (after first being made at 2:15 am to guess its major themes). And it's good to know that you are a big name speaker!

It may be useful to know that, in the two-hour streaming video of the ceremony, brotherguy begins speaking at the 16-minute point, and finishes up at 26.
