This Weekend’s Conference

This weekend’s conference was well organized and beneficial to all who attended. I owe the organizers another grateful mention. They innovated and I think it worked well.

Also, in answering a question today I got the author right (Thomas Wolfe) but the title of his book wrong. It should have been Bonfire of the Vanities, and I said it was Breakfast of Champions. Breakfast of Champions was written by Kurt Vonnegut.

Saw some familiar faces, but a lot of new ones too. That was good. Although I think numbers do not matter, and in some respects increased numbers come with increased problems, the growth of interest and participation is obviously welcome. What we are doing has long ago been prophesied.

One final reflection: Sometimes I think having a “native cheery temperament” is not altogether a good thing.
