Today was the first "official" day of the congress. It was our longest day yet and I guess its going to be like this for the next few weeks. 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.. It was a slow start as the crowds are all just arriving into Columbus getting set for the weekend. Its going to be busy so trying to not go out of the gate to fast. Had great visits today from contributing artists Ann Dysinger, Pat Getha and Cindy Bryden. Its so nice to meet the artists from the mural face to face. It really makes these murals worthwile. I can only hope we will meet them all some day. Had some great chats today and i am guesing the longer "one on one" chats with guests will turn into talkig loudly to groups of people all at once over the weekend. So lots of fluids, lots of rest and make sure I am ready for the weekend rush.
Things seem to be set so here we go!
