Packing it up, about to head to the airport. I really want to put on my badge one last time and head to the convention center, but it’s back to the real world and to real work. On the positive side, I am excited and energized and ready to dive back into it with a new view of the world, with friends both new and old to tell about it.
It’s feeling like the end of “The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe”, when you know that the kids can’t return to Narnia (and before you were, ahem, told that there were more books in the series). Sad. A little wistful. Prematurely nolstagic. The difference is, of course, that I can go back next year :-)
