I’m back.

The rest of the conference was colored by the way it started for me.

But I had so many great conversations with so many cool people while I was there that my undercurrent of sadness mostly stayed an undercurrent.

And today I was engaged in my standard re-entry practice of reading assorted conference blogs, finding out how things went that I didn’t get to, seeing other people’s takes on events I attended. I was taken off guard to read a post about the session I was part of. Thanks so much for your kind words, Kelly!

I may post a few more photos in the next day or so.

    My report was posted over at Heidi Mac’s THE BEAT, and I already commented on Sharyn’s journal – but I just wanted to say how nice it was to finally meet you, Sara!

    Yes – apparently someone on the engine realized it coincided with that part of my book tour, and is arranging for me to be a guest.

    (I used to live in the San Juan islands, near Paul Chadwick, and my daughter was born in Anacortes.)

    LOVE Portland…

    Your photos of Pauline Drive are really wonderful, picking out a lot of details that I missed. I actually have a photo of you hard at work which I hope to post shortly.
