A few years ago, Nathan adventured to the New York Film Academy where he had received a scholarship. Fearful of him making it there as a believer, I spent a lot of time on my knees and made a lot of calls. But, as it ends up, God lives in New York, too, and he did just fine through all the tests and trials, he stayed strong.
After a couple of months there, he called me one day and said, "You know, Mom, I feel like I fit in for the first time in my life. I am surrounded by dreamers and artists and people who don't think it is crazy to talk about music, books, ideas, and who have an international view of life. I feel like I belong with the people who are visionary like me."
That is why I am excited. I am attending a conference this weekend with 200 women who write blogs. Writers cannot not write. I am writing an article in the shower, when I am in the car, when I walk. I love to think and I love to express it.
And so you can imagine how much talking, chattering, opinions flying, ideas going around, I will meet with this week--with others who think about life in terms of writing and communicating.
Blogging is an easy outlet for me because every time I read or have a quiet time, I want to share what i have been thinking, and so blogging is in some ways, a journal for me.
So I am excited that I get to go to a place where the real me will be the norm! :) This is what I met this morning on the way to the airport--winter wonderland and snow and foggy skies. But it is already an adventure--just to see if I actually get to take off and make it to Harrisburg to the Relevant Conference.
I wish all of you a good day and the opportunity to be with those who think and behave in the same manner as you!
