For those that know me, you know what an effective,
consistent, and thorough communicator and writer I am.
For those that don't know me, and have been following this
website; you've seen first hand what an effective, consistent,
and thorough communicator and writer I am.
In other words- I stink at this.
I am sorry that I have been so remiss at getting updates to
this page; and will endeavor (without promising to actually
deliver- it's me we're talking about here, after all...) to
make updates for the next conventions on the tour available
I've managed to write convention reports for GaFilk
and ConThirteena. And enough
time has passed from Consonance,
FKO, and Conterpoint
I'm not sure how good of a conreport I can do. But I'll give
it my best shot with my faulty memory.
Today is August 6. Pretty much the eve of ConChord. I'm sitting
on an Amtrak train traveling from Chicago back to Ann Arbor-
watching the scenery of Southern Michigan pass by. Almost
everything I see is in varying shades of green and yellow-
trees, flowers; summer colors. And when I started this WorlDream
Journey; everything out my window was white and grey.
When the Journey completes; we'll have been through the riotous
colors of Fall; and coming back around to the whites and greys
We've done the WorlDream at GaFilk, ConThirteena, Consonance,
FilKONtario, and Conterpoint.
Coming up is ConChord, HarmUni, Worldcon, FilkCONtinental,
The Dream has taken me to friends both old and new in Georgia,
England, Ontario, California, and Maryland. I started this
dream in part to see dear found family- I didn't expect to
find more reasons to continue. But almost everywhere I've
gone someone happens to me that breathes new life into the
Dream. New faces, new reasons. Old faces, and new reasons
abound as well...
Rob and Gwen, Hilary and Zander, Merav and Jon, ilk, and Karen...
and Lloyd. Gretchen, Bill, Alison, Jodi, Debbie, Scott, Amanda,
Bill, Brenda, Jared, James, Alisa, Luis, Jane, Cynthia, Pete,
Jill, Cecil ... and the list goes on. It's people. It's *all*
about people, and the community that we're constantly reinventing
"Family met that wasn't there before
A few short hours and your life has changed once more
Expanding circles- the world is smaller and more warm"
