I returned from SAMLA late last night after a two-hour delay put me in the Atlanta airport around 11:30 PM. The flight up to Roanoake was also delayed two hours, so by the end of the weekend, I was starting to feel like that character from that Tom Hanks movie I’ll likely never see. I’ve spent so much time on the road lately that it actually took me a few minutes to realize that I was in my own bed this morning when I woke up.
The conference went pretty well in that I met several cool people and became re-acquainted with several others, including one person I met at a conference in Irvine something like seven years ago. I’ll also be chairing SAMLA’s film panel next year when the conference is in Atlanta, so that should be a lot of fun. I’m off to a meeting, so I’ll give a fuller scoop on the conference later.
