#NCTE22: #CuriosityCrew

This post, post 999 is a celebration.

#NCTE22 is joyful, celebratory, and feels like “old home week” or summer camp in sunny, warm Anaheim for those of us who had to de-ice, de-ice, de-ice, and de-ice in order to reach CA.

Back in person.

Old friends or friends of years, but maybe just not IRL (in real life).

Or in real life for the first time in eons.

Our group of five … together face-to-face.

New connections with authors, researchers and teachers. Perhaps those we’ve met in circles or boxes via technology.

Being in community. Laughing in community. Learning in community. Conversations face-to-face in community. A feeling of stress reduction as like-minded individuals gather in halls, rooms, eating places to share common beliefs, interests, and values.

We miss those not here (Dr. Mary Howard) but we celebrate the fact that she is following along and we’ve already Zoomed and Face-Timed.


Fuel for the soul . . .

How are you fueling your soul today?
