I just returned home from the phenomenal city of San Francisco and the 2010 BlogHer Food conference! I have been staring at my computer screen and reliving the marvelous experience in my head over and over. Like a movie. With musical accompaniment. But I just can’t seem to put the parade of emotions and images marching through my head into words. I keep typing and deleting. Typing and deleting. It’s almost as if I’m afraid that I can’t do it justice. What I experienced this past weekend was more than just a conference. This past weekend was filled with incredible people, invaluable information, tears, laughter, more tears, even more laughter and a sense of belonging and connection that I have never known.
I made new friends that feel like old ones.
Encountered mere acquaintances that cemented into friendships.
Met strangers who turned into friends.
I grew in ways that I could never imagine.
I learned that finding your voice is as much of a journey as living life is. One moment at a time.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. And since I can’t seem to find the words, I am giving you my words in pictures. A visual tour of my adventure.
Won’t you join me?
I am ending my photo commentary the same as I began, with the Golden Gate Bridge.
I may not be able to put my experiences into words but the pictures seem to be finding the words for me. The Golden Gate Bridge speaks the loudest. I can see that it perfectly represents the magical transformation that I experienced bridging the gap within myself…with the most fabulous of views.
So glad you joined me!
