Hullo one and all. I have been slightly absent as I dealt with life these past few months. I wanted to thank all those that helped me raise the funds to come to Conference. Getting to talk and share with these few people that understand exactly my predicament because they have been through a lot of the same issues is simply intoxicating. You go from feeling as though you are the rare mythical creature on display for the world to see, to feeling like you found your herd, your flock, your school, your pack, your pride.
I am reflecting and thinking of all the great connects that were worked on here. The new connections with those I have never met before, the nurturing of the connections previously started, and the reminiscing of those connections lost over the year.
I cannot find the words to describe what being at YACC's Conferences is like. This is something that a few of us discussed. All I can do is share some feelings that come with the time we get to spend together: acceptance, love, admiration, loyalty, connectivity, joy, sorrow, exuberance, peace.
