On Professional Conferences

All conferences are alike
Shared workshops, ideas, creative energy, and stories
Caught up in the wondering about  what will come next – first steps, new steps, deep steps, steep steps – moving forward, growing, accepting a helping hand, offering a helping hand
Reflecting on my role, our role
Curious about how to define, promote, and achieve excellence
Anxious to talk about it with others
All conferences are alike
Reconnecting with old friends
Celebrating our personal challenges and the strength that comes from sharing them
Celebrating our professional growth and acknowledging our responsibility to give back
All conferences are alike
Discovering  new friends
Grateful to see there is a future and it will be bright
All conferences are alike
They end; we return to our ‘real’ world, our ‘real’ work; we feel a void
We look forward to the next conference down the road because
All conferences are alike
