I am, all day today and tomorrow, at a conference. I know… some way of starting spring break! But, there is an intellectual nostalgia in this exercise and so I am not likely to complain.

On my way to the meetings, I passed three weavers and shakers. I remember having once made snakes out of colorful woven plastic ribbons just such as these. I can’t remember if there was a notable final product, but it hardly mattered. The ribbons were vibrant and lovely to behold.

Perhaps there is an analogy there to the conference, but I’m not going to push it. I’ll just leave you with a photo of the weavers.
