Denver

Posted on: July 20, 2008

If I were doing this chronologically, I would have Denver come before the move, but I am not that organized. Anyway, I went to the Journaling Conference in Denver last month. I copied the home page for the conference to post here. It was great fun, and I got to meet so many of my Collective Journey friends:

Connie (my roomie at the Denver Sheraton)

Gina

Fran

Paula

Linda

Kay

Betsy (and Bob)

Elaine

Amy

Ellen

Debby T

Mari

Catherine E (and Sam)

We all hung out together and had a wonderful time. Lots of great journaling ideas. I actually have started writing in my journal again. I took apart my program and put the great parts in my paper journal.

Don’t we look like we are having fun? Kay and Linda were not there, being so busy being the hostesses for the whole thing. I don’t know where Gina and I were when this was being taken. I think Paula took this picture. Mari popped in an out, as she was busy with her music teacher. I would do it again in a heartbeat, if it meant I could meet so many CJ members in one place.

I only spent 50 dollars on books, and treated myself to a new journal. I realized I am such a word person, and visual journaling might be fun. I took classes in bodywork, writing my way through transitions, (not doing a good job of that), memoir writing (handling secrets), bibliotherapy for kids (Amy’s class), and then we did a panel discussion on CJ and how we operated. It’s amazing that we have been going for 10+ years now and are still as strong, if not stronger than ever.
