Photograph of a room in the Marriott Courtyard Hotel, Kansas City East/Blue Springs, Missouri

What can I say? I liked the lighting.

It’s a shame I messed up the bed, but I decided to take this picture after I’d retired for the night.

22:18 — Yes, I was in bed before half past ten on a Saturday night. The past few weeks had left me exhausted. I had produced the first online version of the diocesan magazine as well as convention to prepare for.

I arrived in Kansas City Thursday, helped set up, and then covered the area confirmation service Thursday evening. Friday, I worked on the AV presentation, and Friday night, after the convention dinner, I set up the AV for Saturday’s convention, finishing around 23:30. Saturday I was up early for Convention, followed by the breakdown, and then in the evening, I went off to shoot pictures of the youth at the Bishop’s Ball. It was no wonder I was tired, and I was glad I’d opted for another night in the hotel instead of driving back home to Springfield Saturday night.
