Lately, I have had much cause to revel over and reflect upon the wonder that is Connection. Whether observed as an amalgamation (aka: combination, blending, unification), or a coalition (alliance, confederation, league, society), or an agreement (harmony, accord, unity) it typically denotes a beneficial union…
The past two weeks have provided ready reminders for much of which I am grateful, not the least of which the sense of completeness that has ensconced the happenings here at Your Creative Connection! We are now a solid TRIO for all of the wonderment that is our October gathering at Haw River State Park (10/11-10/15, 2018).

That email prompted another, which resulted in my registration for said event.
In spite of the fact that there is plenty about it that I do not like, more often than not, I find that I am immensely thankful for the wonders of the world wide web.
