Though we share this humble path, alone
How fragile is the heart
Oh give these clay feet wings to fly
To touch the face of the stars

Breathe life into this feeble heart
Lift this mortal veil of fear
Take these crumbled hopes, etched with tears
We'll rise above these earthly cares

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me

On the Road, Again.

Sent in my registration and booked the room for Confluence. I had a fun time last year.This year I'm thinking of going the extra mile and taking a day off of work to get there early. I missed some good stuff that first afternoon. This con is a very well attended small but growing con that drew a lot of big names last year. I wish I had known more about con going and people then, I would have had a better time. As it was, Tobias Buckell kept going and going like the energizer bunny, and I was dead-tired from work. Sorry, Tobias. This year, I hope to be better (hence the taking the day off). Good folks, good panels, good parties, lots of nice energy. I hope to see everybody there again and have a wonderful time.

As a side note, I'm still working on going to World Fanatasy. If you're thinking of going, the deadline for $125 memberships is this month on the 15th. The main hotel is already booked (but they have a second hotel).

Nice line up there. Love the name 'Blind Lemming Chiffon'.

I hope so, LBB. I'm still kinda new at the con going thing, but I'm starting to have more "fun time" stuff then "I gotta see this panel" stuff.

Todd, yeah the filkers all have interesting names, like "The Great Lukeski" and others. I haven't gone to a concert yet, so I don't know what I'm missing.
