Ok, not really summer camp. I'm off to the HOW Design Conference, this year in Boston. I try to go every year. Thankfully, now that I'm a HOW Ambassador, it's been every year for a while. The first one I attended (back in 1994!) changed my life, lit me on fire. I had no idea what I didn't know!
Every year I meet up with my extended family, my HOW family. We're all in design-related fields, and we all get it. We're birds of a feather! There's a lot of hugs, lots of laughter, and yes, even a few serious conversations about what we can do as designers to change the world for the better. Yeah, we're those kinds of people.
I know that the only things I'm responsible for—truly in control of—are my words and my actions. That's all I have to make waves in the world. And in my circle of influence, which is about a five-foot radius around me, I want to have as many people as I can, spreading as much good juju as I can, so that the ripples of positivity and love go farther and do more. Attending HOW makes it super easy. Being a HOW Ambassador makes it super fun.
I'll tell you all about it when I get back. I hope to see you there! =)
