I was to leave in in week for conference in Toronto about art quilting. Due to COVID-19, the conference was cancelled,
I have been on the committee helping to plan the conference for more than a year. I spent 6 months organizing lightning talks (20 slides – 20 seconds a slide – for quick 6 minute 40 second presentations). I was excited for the time away and time to connect with my people.
Iâ€™m bummed and frustrated and struggling to adjust. I understand the decision to cancel and they are plotting to make the conference virtual which may be nifty, but it doesnâ€™t get me out of my house, out of my comfort zone or give me a much needed break from daily life. I will eventually accept the situation (and just my sails), but itâ€™s okay to grieve for plans you donâ€™t get to see through. Right?
