Here I am...in a dimly lit meeting room, working on a few details for the second day of our conference tomorrow.
Everything is going eerily well--at least it has today. The first day was solemn at best. My pal Cindy who comes to help me out at our meetings (thank goodness she has been put on the payroll!) was in an accident on the way from the airport. Her shuttle was the last of 5 cars that collided...and her van hit a Fed Ex truck from behind. She's OK except for a wicked case of whiplash but we spent our first evening here at the Pasadena Urgent Care and CVS Pharmacy. The same day, we found out that the sister of our good friend committed suicide night before last. Even more tragic is that this woman's daughter is supposed to get married on May 17. Can you imagine? My heart goes out to the entire family. I can't fathom what they are feeling right about now.
But, today everything has clicked. All the "pieces parts" of this conference have fallen in place and we are thrilled to be underway. The weather is simply GLORIOUS and we have had no shortage of yummy eats (an important traveling ingredient for sure). Spring is definitely showing off its finest colors here.
More later from Californ-I-A. I'd love to hear what you are most looking forward to (or are enjoying) about Spring in your world...
Until next time,
