Mendocino Quill's editor, a.k.a. The Maven
The 2015 conference opened with glorious sunshine Thursday morning, and though fog arrived at noon and gray skies returned on Friday, sun was with us again on Saturday. Also returning was Oscar’s Phantom Café, whose delicious food was ferried in by Oscar’s Dodge, which appears to be the longest antique car in the world. Along with food was the coffee station.
Viewing the crowds of participants and presenters, The Maven became obsessed by book bags. People carried them everywhere, like alien growths attached to their bodies. Mike Croghan’s was the saggiest, most worn looking, but holding up—no seams splitting or bottom falling out of that sturdy bag.
Yianna’s was the most glamourous. A rock star in France, she’d made hers into a painted work of art.
Don preferred a serviceable duffle, while Nyla, like quite a number of others, carried two bags, and faculty member Lisa Locascio chose a fashionable leather version of the classic backpack.
