Well, I am here at the first ever Camp Widow East coast. Just like at every event at every hotel, we are cobbling together internet service between wifi cards and the hotel's official service and 3G from an occasional iPad.
It is kind of amazing to me to see the DOZENS of Widowed Village members who are here in person. We have a cool booth and are greeting everyone who walks by. I like this space -- we have a smallish area in the hotel and it's easier to find people (like when we need tape to put the booth together!) and to find the sessions. We're right in front of the tribute wall. It's hard to remember it's only registration day -- there are so many sessions planned for today and so many new campers to get oriented. I love seeing that we have more men than ever, and more people of color. Smiles and tears.
Lots of excitement... lots of technical glitches... lots of stories and dreams.
I'll share more as the day goes by and if the connection holds up, we'll have more posts from others, too!
