The sign is a countdown to a very big event in this little city: The Decatur Book Festival, now a Labor Day tradition.
The countdown has double meaning for me. The sign is also counting down to the end of this Challenge.
To reduce my stress, I’d love to focus on the Festival (the reward) and not on my savings (the work). I think you’d appreciate that, yes?
Shannon’s DBF Highlights
(Or, What Better Way to Celebrate the End of this Really Difficult Challenge)
Jericho Brown. I was lucky enough to see this poet read at Agnes Scott. He’s an audience-charmer with stirring poems and a fantastic smile.
Representin’ the A. Thought-provoking sessions about my home city. Topics include race relations. (Luda’s interpretation of that topic below.)
Note: Luda is not a DBF speaker.
A little professional development. Social networking + Empowering people resistant to change + Atlanta Women for Business = opportunities galore!
A little personal development. Buddhist meditation and 15 years in Tibet? Yes, please.
And that’s not all… we can’t forget dessert. Baking on a budget + chocolate. (Enough said, right?)
By the way, did I mention that DBF is free? Except for the books and funnel cake of course.
Hope to see some of you there!
