After less than 24 hours home, I am off on another trip, this time by myself, flying south. I am heading to my favorite conference.
I've been looking forward to this conference for months. I'll be going to sessions to talk about books and ideas, about teaching and writing, about environmental issues and feminism. I will get to meet some of my favorite writers. In the evenings, friends will bring out guitars and harmonicas for a jam session, and we'll stay up late, talking and listening to music.
I'll be seeing friends I made on a whitewater rafting trip I took summer before last, and friends I've know for years. Artist Friend will be there! I am rooming with three very cool women, at least one of whom has agreed to pose naked for the blog. The week will include several blogger meet-ups.
The conference will begin with all kinds of happy reunions and end on Saturday with a raft trip. I am looking forward to all kinds of great conversations.
