here and the conference in more detail here. I am a big Donald Miller fan, having read all of his books. This conference is based on his book "A Million Miles in a Thousand Years". It's sort of hard to explain what the conference is about--I'm not totally clear on all of the specifics--but just knowing it's about viewing your life as a story, writing a new story for your life, and Donald Miller--and I want to be there.
At the same time it will also be a getaway weekend for me and LoveHubbie--we're going down early and it is not raining! Despite it being only about two and a half hours away, I have only been to Portland twice and never with enough time to look around, so I'm thrilled.
The venue is right across the street from Powell's Books, which is the largest independent used and new bookstore in the world. I've never been there, either.
I contemplated taking my laptop and doing a lot of blogging while I'm there, but then decided that it would be better to just "be there" fully and blog afterwards. I'll still have Facebook and Twitter capabilities via my iPhone, and I think that will be good enough. I want the time to be semi-contemplative so I plan on doing a lot of journaling. When I get back on Tuesday, I'll be ready to blog, and to read your blogs, so see you then. Much love, O
