So I forgot, August was also the tenth anniversary of the Kansas City Irish Fest. I say this every year, but it really shouldn't be this fun to work this hard for free. I am on my feet for seventyleven hours on about 4 hours sleep. And I willingly do it every year. I get to hang around people I consider my family which, of course, they are. Yeah, I love you guys!
Speaking of love… in September, I was lucky enough to attend a one-day workshop with my mentor, Peleg Top. He challenged all in attendance to infuse our businesses, as well as our lives, with more love—then showed us how. Ah. Maze. Ing. Yep.
He asked us to write a poem in one shot with no editing called Who I Am. Here's mine that I wrote that day:
Who I Am
I am Cami
That's iMac backwards for all you designers.
(That explanation doesn't always work out.)
I am love.
I am power.
I am here and I am now.
I want to give, because in giving, I receive—more.
Precious, precocious, persnickety.
Sexy, super, silly.
I am Cami! That's who I am!
Now, I want to know, who are you?
Thanks for reading,
p.s. Peleg is on a three-month sabbatical. Someday I hope to have the wherewithall to do that too.
Good juju-spreader, speaker, graphic designer. I'd love to hear from you!
