I have been on the road quite a bit recently ...

 

I went to ASCD in Chicago

 

I went to NCTIES in Raleigh

 

I went to the Antares Rocket Launch NASASocial even at Wallops Island

 

And I just came from after spending a few days in Kentucky at the National Center for Family Literacy Conference ...

 

Each of these experiences has been exciting, interesting, and meaningful in its own way ...

 

I am still trying to wrap my mind around all the space stuff I learned about on my NASA experience ...

 

And I think that I feel more inspired today after returning from the literacy conference that I did the recent technology conferences ...

 

I know many may say I feel that way just because it was the most recent one ...

 

But I don't think that is it ...

 

I think it has more to do with the relationships and connections ...

As Wonderopolis Ambassadors, Barbara, Jon, Paul and I got to spend time connecting and sharing (and we sure missed Maria) ...

 

We also connected with the people of NCFL ...

 

We got a change to connect with the guys of EepyBird ... and even get to create our own geysers!

 

Listening to them share their creative process at the banquet was quite powerful ...

 

Be obsessive. Be stubborn. Be extreme.

 

Listening to and talking with CC Chapman as well as getting a copy of his book to read has made an impact on me even in such a short time ...

 

As I went to work today, I had a new vision and purpose ...

 

 

I may not yet know the exact details of that vision and purpose yet ...

 

But it is there ...

 

I want to move from 1 to 10 to 100 ...

 

I want to decide what to do and choose or create a path to follow ...

 

I want to find joy in what I do each day ...
