I feel this way every year, but it seems like we only just got started.
I'm really impressed with the response the online sessions are getting. I'm really impressed with how engaged everybody has been in the discussions. And I'm really impressed with how late everyone manages to stay up.
We had a pretty spectacular wrap-up to the conference today: Dancing With the Copy Editors. ... Well, some dancing with copy editors anyway. We'll leave it at that. I'm sure there will be great pictures, although whether you'll see them depends on how much the subjects will pay to suppress them.
But I digress.
It was a fantastic party on the terrace outside the Miami Herald, up against the bay with a fantastic view, and featuring a string trio that, every time I was around them, broke into a spirited rendition of ... well, something. One of the Brahms Hungarian Dances, I think, though recollections of the afternoon's salsa performance blocked out the details somehow.
Did I mention it was fantastic and I was impressed?
Anyway, I really will regret going home this morning. Then again, there are only three hundred and sixty-some days until the next conference. We'd better get planning.
