All Rallied Out

June 5, 2016

Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m tired.

This Reason Rally weekend has been utterly packed with an astounding variety of activities, talks, events, and, well, human beings! There was no way to cover it all, but I hope we were able to give you a good sense of some of the truly inspiring, moving, and enlightening moments that just kept on coming, hour by hour, minute by minute.

It’s time to wrap up, to pack up the propaganda, to load the vans, and to nurse the sunburns. And lay down. I really want to lay down.

My congratulations to the Reason Rally Coalition, and all the staff and volunteers that made this happen. I played some early role in all of this, heading the communications committee and whatnot, but of course the heavy lifting was done by my future coworker, Lyz Liddell. (Did I not tell you that we get to keep her? We do. Ha ha.) The woman is a force of nature. No wait, she’s better than a force of nature, because she’s really, really intentional. So maybe more like a superintelligent A.I., like one that would scare Elon Musk.

Did I mention I’m tired?

My sincere thanks to the CFI Live team, Nora Hurley and Matt Licata. What an awesome job they did, and how lucky am I to have them working with me.

And thanks of course to you for keeping up with us! We should do this again sometime. If you’re just popping in, go on back to the beginning of this blog-site-thing, and see what’s transpired.

I hope everyone traveling does so safely, and retains a sense of hope and openness that I think this Reason Rally tried to bring. “Be excellent to each other,” said Abraham Lincoln, I think, and so we should.

You know, that’s not a bad idea for a rally.
