An Echo Conference Update (sort of)

Yeah, I know...wrong Echo. But seriously, when else am I going to work a pic of Mr. Echo into a post?

I had a great first day at the conference. Best part? Finally meeting Marni (@marni71) and Sarah (@SarahMSalter) in person. Like Steph (@redclaydiaries) whom I met in Atlanta 2 years ago (has it been that long?), they are exactly how I expected them to be–which is to say, they are as authentic in person as they are online. (That statement should be in reverse. Oh, the times they are a-changing!)

We attended two break-out sessions and then the main session this evening given by Dan Merchant. They were all excellent. But rather than trying to give an intelligent account of what I learned today whist trying to keep my eyes open, I’ll just share a video created by Blaine Hogan that he shared with us in his session “Ideas, Hope and the Creative Process”. It pretty much blew me away. And not just the first time I saw it, but the second, third and fourth time as well.

Unclenching my fist and letting go. Praying the same peace for you.
