I’m not a true introvert in that I like the company of people, particularly like-minded ones, but I am a true introvert in that I need alone time to recharge. So after a full day of great speeches, sessions, and conversations, I took myself off for a river walk.
It worked: after 2.65 miles, I felt both more relaxed and more energized than before I had left. I even had a couple of great interactions with people on the trail. (And with ducks and rabbits too, but that’s another story…)
After one such interaction, I sat to write my impressions down before I forgot them because I could see the encounter dropping almost whole into my book, which just proves the point we’ve heard a few times this weekend: you never know when inspiration will hit, so be open and be ready!
