Still in L.A.

My GSAW working group session went reasonably well. The room was a bit too small (and some people looked in but went to other sessions because of that). But the discussion was lively and I didn't have to resort to my list of questions to keep the conversation going. All of my panelists did fine and most of the people who attended had at least something to say, which is about as much as you can ask.

I drove down to Long Beach to go to storytelling there in lieu of either sitting through the evening session or going out to dinner with a group of Circle-A folks. There were just a few people there, but it was still fun. I told "The Tortoise and the Hare" and it went over well. It did rain some during the drive back, which was annoying, but it wasn't terrible.

I managed to make my charts for my outbrief tomorrow. It is always challenging to summarize a 4 hour session in 5 minutes. Tomorrow is going to be a long day between the morning session (including the outbriefs from the working groups, lunch with some folks I used to work with (including, possibly, my first boss, who retired several years ago), and the flight home. Good thing I am planning on taking Friday off.
