Hello from Austin!
The journey was a bit rough but I am here. It was one of the roughest flights I’ve ever been on, and after watching last night’s episode of Lost I was wondering if we were all going to end up on an invisible island somewhere!
Other than that, I enjoyed three hours of solitary reading time in Linda Joy Myers’ The Power of Memoir. I found a lot of inspiration and ideas in those three hours, evidenced by the papers I filled with notes as I read.
Upon arriving here in Austin I shared a shuttle to the hotel with three other women who were also on the way to the conference! How exciting it was to meet and talk with like-minded women who I have previously only known through email.
When we arrived here at the hotel I met a woman who had brought her little Yorkie with her. If only I had know it was a pet-friendly hotel. Trust me, it was hard leaving those cute little Yorkie faces at home this morning.
I’m just going to have cup of hot tea (it’s COLD here!) and then venture out to help with conference things.
