On to the Next!

Another fantastic conference comes to an end.  I heard some really wonderful things these last few days:

“I’ve never felt so welcome anywhere the way I did here.”

“I can’t tell who’s a learner and who’s a teacher.  We’re all just women together.”

“I never knew what it meant to have women as friends, to trust women.”

“I learned so much.”

“I come here to be re-energized.”

“I will definitely be back next year.”

“I learned so much, and I can take this back to my community.”

 This was such a good year.  We had so many students — 40% of our participants were students this year.  More than ever before.  That was pretty exciting.

Tomorrow is our first board meeting of the new year — conference debrief, meeting planning for the year and setting our task lists.  Work, but very satisfying on the heels of the last three excellent days.

  1. I love how you captured bits of dialogue and put it all together, one after another. It gives such a deep glimpse into the conference. What a great idea — I’ll have to snatch this up as a writer. 🙂
    Happy writing, Ruth

  2. Snatch away, Ruth! I wish I had thought to jot down more of the women’s comments. There were some wonderful comments in our closing circle … throughout the three days, actually. I’m definitely not the only one who came away feeling revitalized.

Your turn ...
