I was lucky enough to get a spot at Yan’s Portland workshop in early September. Not only did I get to explore the west coast (hey, I’ve never been that far west. It’s the coast, alright?) with one of my best friends Halee (another attendee), but I was also fortunate enough to meet so many new friends & connect on subjects near & dear to us all. And, you know. Learn from the incomparable Yan. I reflect back on this time and draw from the lessons learned & people I shared it with. And I smile.
