Well, that was then... (last Thursday, the 19th, when I flew from Atlanta to Long Beach, California.) I spent a couple of intense days with day passes into Convergence vendors hall and exhibits at the Long Beach Convention Center. I'm now at the ATA (American Tapestry Alliance) workshop site--Chapman University, several miles and an exciting shuttle ride later, for the next three days of workshops.
Very nice dinner & get-together with workshop leaders and participants tonight... workshops start at 9 a.m. tomorrow! I still haven't adjusted my East Coast rhythm to West Coast time so am still waking up around 6 a.m. EST... which is now 3 a.m. or so here... and I'm pretty d**n tired by this point! I'm sure I'll be on this time cycle in a few days--like, perhaps by Wednesday, when I leave?
