July 2

I've been thinking about that first conference in the early 70s--in Chicago in the Palmer House. I remember how nervous I was, how insecure I felt. And contrasting with this, my second conference in the Washington Hilton. LLL has given me confidence to do all kinds of things--including traveling by myself, finding my way to distant cities and new hotels. That's only one of the skills that LLL had taught me. Without my experiences as a Leader my computer skills would be pretty thin too. :-)

Last night KLLL received a award for the library book project--we gave copies of The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding to all the public libraries in our state a couple of years ago. It's nice to have the project recognized.

Barbara Colorosa was as entertaining as ever at the opening of the Conference last night. And I actually made it to the 8:00 a.m. opening this morning. Following that I attend one regular conference session--and learned how to do the four point hug. Ask me about that! It really feels good to be hugged, especially when away from home and my dear hubby.

I spent a bit of time hosting in the Alum room and now I'm headed toward the USWD suite to help get ready for the World Faire tonight. It is so much fun to see old friends--I've crossed paths with several Leaders that I've not seen nor talked to in several years. And it's fun to meet new people from all over the world. There is nothing like an LLLI Conference!

Dear Rosetta,
I am enjoying your blog. I hope you write about Pilates tomorrow. I am interested in anything LLL, but am especially interested in KS as my e-friend (and two times IRL) Connie Davis is from KS. I heard Barbara Coloroso in person in my town this spring, so I didn't miss everything, but I sure miss being at the ICf and hope to go next time. Mary Baker in California
