His Excellent Adventure
The LifeRing Expo May 9-10 is already fading into memory. You can read the quasi-'official' wrap-up I wrote on the lifering.org (aka unhooked.com) website, with some photos by Karen Ivy, here. But to really get the flavor of the event, particularly for a traveler who came a considerable distance, you have to read "My Excellent Expo Adventure," by Craig Whalley, here. Craig's account is all the more interesting because he is mainly an online participant -- he is listmeister of two lists and online contact for a third -- and does not have a face-to-face meeting he can go to. What's it like when online participants meet face to face for the first time? Craig writes well, and has a good eye for the quirks and foibles that make people human and lovable. Worth reading. It would be good if more people followed Craig's example and wrote such journals.
