I am currently in a three-day seminar on community development and I am sitting in the back row of a very small, very cold room. I could use some coffee and some leg room, but I can't complain, it's interesting stuff and the seminar is free.
I was thinking of giving you a play-by-play of my day but I don't think you could handle the excitement. However, I will give you a few observations:
~ There is a man sitting in front of me that looks like Santa Claus. He is probably 80 years old and has an iPad. That is one hip Kris Kringle.
~ The walls are covered in flags from around the world. Some of them I have never seen before. Can you tell me which country this flag represents? I totally googled it.
~ Our speaker just said, "a weed is just a plant out of place. There is nothing bad about a weed; the weed is doing exactly what it was created to do." Discuss amongst yourselves.
~ Something is humming. Awesome.
~ I have a love/hate relationship with power point presentations. They are highly overused but they have the potential to greatly enhance a seminar. It is a fine line, my friends, a fine line.
See, I told you the excitement would overwhelm you. What are you doing today?
