Photo of the Day - Day 92

Today was absolutely amazing.  There is no other way to describe.  I began the morning with an inspiring meeting with colleagues in the After School world of Oakland, planning for the future of our field in a collaborative space.  I was encouraged and connected to a group of adults who care not only about our youth, but about being powerful members of Oakland and growing its workforce from within.  It was beautiful.

In the afternoon I set up to sell at Oakland's Art Murmur.  It's a monthly event for local artists of all kinds to sell to a crowd of thousands who support.  Music blares, food trucks give all the smells, and emerging artists like me have a chance to shine their light.  I had so much support -- from the printing (thanks Joel!), to the construction of my display (thanks Remy!), to the help loading and unloading (thanks Ryan!), to the great company throughout the event (thanks Conrad, Peter, Cory, Shayna, Loren, Erin, and Remy again!).

And so, when I come home to a messy apartment with all the supplies and remnants of a crazed experiment to sell at a festival for the first time, all I can feel is full with gratitude.  This adventure is evolving and teaching me so much, I can't wait to see what's next.  Thanks for joining me along the way :).
