Impending Travel

One of my goals, established maybe six, seven years ago, is to become a recognized public speaker on topics related to perioperative nursing (my specialty within the Profession), nursing informatics (my specialty within my specialty, to boot), and a few other things. This goal is meeting with some success; I may not be famous, but I do a good piece of work. Amongst other things (and I'm sure lomer among others will recognize this), doing these presentations meets my desire/needs for public performance, or theatre if you will. Becuase there is a definable thrill about performing. So even though the topics may be related to what I do for my major income, and for continuing education which RN's need in most states for relicensure (or re-certification of specialty certifications), I try to do them all as a performance, bringing humour and comic relief along with the education and drama.

I think it't time, though to ammend that goal and include spreading the performances out a bit more than just October. For the next three weekends, I'm tavelling. The first is the longest trip, bouncing through SeaTac but spending little time in Seattle. Then the next weekend, I'm off to St. Petersburg Beach, a relatively local trip. Finally, it's off to Philidelphia, for basically two nights and then home. On all of these trips, I'm also going to at least squeeze in some time for photographic related activity. On one of them, I'll be delivering prints which someone's waited for nearly 30 years... long story.

Houdini is sitting right next to me as I write this; in fact, he's trying to help. Maybe he's got an idea what's coming up. After all, the same thing happened the past two years, and he's going to be four soon.

If your schedule permits, give me a buzz when you're in St. Pete.

San Diego itself is not, at least as far as location for nursing conferences. April 2008 is on the calendar, though, for Anaheim, and likely I'll build in some time and head down to SD post-Congress.
