These pictures serve to prove that on occasion I leave the confines of my office and venture out into the real world to do some work. I had a very short time-slot to try and drum in the importance of getting the Episcopal Relief & Development, Episcopal Asset Map up to date. Judging by the small number of updates I’ve seen this past few months, I failed.
Annual Convention is a busy time. When you are looking after all the AV, taking photographs and helping set up and breakdown between sessions, it gets super busy. The previous night I didn’t stop until 11:00 p.m. as I was preparing some late-arriving documents for the conference website. This morning I left my room at around 7:00 a.m. with the plan to go back and put some shoes on before the workshop sessions started at 10:00 a.m. It never happened.
Which is why 15 minutes before my presentation started I was sitting on the floor re-familiarizing myself with the presentation I’d prepared two weeks previously in the certain knowledge I’d be too busy to write it nearer to convention.
I can’t believe I need new glasses again. But looking at how far away the laptop is and how I’m trying to peer through the bottom part of my progressive lenses, it looks like I do.
