First of all, this was an amazing group this year at the BLMC, standing room only at lunch. I've never seen the lunch room so crowded, but even during my session, everyone was so attentive and excited to be here that, as a teacher, it energized me.
In this situation, you always want to feel useful, like whatever you said is being retained, and that people are adapting it to their own experiences. But at the same time, the students and attendees are giving you inspiration back. I really feel that way here. There was a lot of energy and interest in this group.
