It was an excellent experience; the snowdrifts were three feet deep
along the lighthouse trail, but as long as you went before 7:30 am
you could (mostly) walk over the crust. Not always, of course, which
led to a trepidatious tramp, or a perilous perambulation. I found it
not dissimilar to cruising the web (for which I have always though
cruising entirely too carefree a term for the cautious way in which I
get from stepping stone to stepping stone across the information
flood.) One misstep and you're plummeting into a dead-end node, like
Alice down the rabbithole....
Conference organization was impeccable; papers and
discussions thoughtprovoking; talent night ineffable. I quite liked
having it on a little earlier than we've sometimes had. I loved the
sunshine, hot on your skin, and the lake-winds breathing ice by
Many thanks to all who made it happen.
