There’s a certain heady rush that happens as people trickle into a location for an exchange. We all know a few people exclusively from seeing them at exchanges. Recognition across an airport, a hotel lobby, wandering venue locations. Tomorrow I expect to exchange at least 3 dozen hugs, and to catch up on the lives of people who I might consider friends. The energy is highest now. We are the lucky ones who have arrived early, combated jet lag or the bad sleep from the bus. Tomorrow is still a world of possibility.
