After the Storm

Posted on Sunday, April 22nd, 2007.

A few drips from the Nor’ester seeped through our trusty Airstream. But on hands and knees, facilitator Sarah Geis handled it deftly.

As facilitator Pat Estess arrived to join the tour, the sun arrived too. Pat likes to think that she had something to do with it.

An even brighter moment occured at the end of a booth session between George Virdokian and Katie Cappalla. After sharing vivid, painful, and often poignant stories about his time working with the Red Cross during the civil war in Lebanon, George had a question for Katie: "Will you marry me?" As far as we know, this was the first proposal ever to occur in the East Booth. (And in case you are wondering, George got the answer he had hoped for).
