Last week Annie Campbell published this op-ed, “Guarding Fragility,” in the Richmond Times-Dispatch. It is powerful and worth the read. I hope you check it out.
Annie has been helping me with my keynote. She’s read, asked questions, and provided much needed encouragement. Annie is a friend of mine, but we’ve never met face to face. In fact, I’ve never even heard her voice. Still, I’ve been wishing she could be at the All-Write Summer Institute.
After I read “Guarding Fragility” I realized her words were perfect to quote in my keynote. Her words made it possible to connect the parts of the keynote in a sophisticated way. So now I’m not only thankful for all of Annie’s feedback, but for the words needed to tie my keynote together.
Here is a little sneak peek…
Can’t wait to meet many of you at the All-Write Summer Institute. If you are a blog reader, please, please, please introduce yourself to me! (And since you’re super-cool, can we take a photo?) And here’s the really great news…let’s say you’re wishing you registered for the All-Write Summer Institute because it would be really great to go — it’s not too late. Yes I know it’s TOMORROW, but you can still register. You can still register. You can still register.
Unhurried. Finding the magic in the middle of living. Capturing a life of ridiculous grace + raw stories.
