Things are about to change here at "The Accident."*
After this weekend. After Blissdom. Things are about to change quite a bit.
I will tell the whole story (if only that were possible) in time. But for today, I need you to know:
I got to be silent. I had a few hours without having to use my mouth; consequently, I am fairly certain I got to complete a thought.
I met some incredible people.
I met some of my own private rock stars; some I had already hoped to meet and a couple of new ones earned status.
The heap o' swag toppled this morning and buried the Small Fry. We got him out.
My brain was fed. I hope to process this information into a set of goals and action steps that will make my heroes and teachers proud. Even the sessions that I felt were kind of, "Meh," as far as personal application for my blog, helped me clarify "What-I'm-About."
It was refreshing to meet dozens of people who blog for real. IRL, I've had all I could stand with folks flinching when I said, "blog".
I found a place in my heart, that I always believed existed. Far from being a place I locked up because I was uncomfortable, it was a place I had set aside for "special" and forgotten I had.
In that place, I found I know what I am supposed to do. I am so glad.
For this I am so very, very, grateful.
So. Consider this fair warning. Things are about to get real. Unapologetic. Passionate. Professional.
"The Situation" is thinking of naming his first child after my blog.
