If I want to write about things I'm grateful for, then great. If I don't, I'll veer off on another topic and that's fine, too. I may even use a few pages as an artist journal again with a drawing per day instead of writing, but I would be equally happy...

For the past several years, I've been been attending various national & international conferences on behalf of my professional organizing business. Sometimes I speak, sometimes I don't, but I always have fun, which is a nice bonus I didn't see coming.
