3 days down, the rest of our lives to go

Now that demos have begun (Tami was everything I expected -- again, creative and inappropriate thinkers, assume what you will), the WP takes on a new life. Every year, the first 2 days are full of awkward fumbling and cautious testing of the surroundings, kind of like a newborn, or 2 teenagers in the backseat of a car. Now that the 3rd day has passed, we are hitting our stride. We are becoming a family, with all of the goods and bads that come with it. Words are being heard, voices are being renewed, and kids, in the end, will be affected.

We had a little bit of home cookin' from Trudy, a dose of lesson learnin' from Tami, and hopefully there will be a lot of story publishin' for Colleen (or Stan if you prefer) in the future. Her first reading is poster-ready, a fitting partner piece to "Everything I need to know, I learned in Kindergarten". Her second was again, a great example of hilarious reality, of the Jackie Sp8 mold.

Another fantastic day focused on writing and sharing. Soon, the demos pick up and, although all else remains, the pace changes. Put your head up and arms out and get ready for liftoff.
