THE LANDFILL CHRONICLES
Finding Happiness In All The Wrong Places
My industry conference adventure is almost over. It was fun being important for a few days. Tomorrow I will go back to being a nobody again.
There's a big party tonight, but I just can't do it. I need some alone time. The week has been emotional. Inspirational. Over-stimulating. Seeing my friends one last time would be the icing on the cake. But even I know too much icing isn't a good thing.
So instead I'm going to have a quiet dinner, then go back to my hotel room and pack up my new-found conference treasures among my worn clothes. While trying to fit it all in one suitcase, I'll think about the friends I saw and all I experienced. So many people asked how I was doing. They've actually followed my life online and they care. I want to use this anti-social time to let that sink in.
So sorry to those who expected to see me tonight, but I need to be a party of one.
