...and another AC in the books
Considering how close it came to my not going to Anthrocon this year, I am especially grateful I was able to make it at the last minute. I am equally grateful to all the friends old and new who helped make it a rewarding and wonderful experience. It was just the recharge this old wolf needed after about nine months of hell.

It would be folly for me to try to list everyone I saw; any list of the people who helped make this con-going experience a great one would inevitably leave someone out. Rather than run that risk, allow me to say that everyone I spent time with helped to make Anthrocon 2010 a wonderful experience. Throughout the rest of the year, when things get tough, I draw on the memories and energy of my AC experience to help me pull through.

I was discussing with a friend of mine at the con that even though the creativity in the furry fandom is evident all over the internet, there is something almost magical to witness the creative process in person at a gathering like Anthrocon. Artists and writers creating worlds from blank screens and sheets of paper, dancers and comics expressing their worlds on stage, DJs creating the aural fuel for such expression, fursuiters bringing their characters to life. The whirlwind of creativity is everywhere; that and the social aspect of AC are two of the chief reasons that keep me coming back year after year. And I have no intention of ever stopping.

Finally, I would like to extend my thanks and kudos to unclekage and his staff and volunteers for running what is in my humble opinion the world's greatest anthropomorphics convention in the world. Likewise, I would like to thank the Dorsai Irregulars and the staff of the Westin for indulging our odd little group again this year. I know I couldn't do what they do, and they do it very well.

Now, after a little rest, it will be time to start planning for next year. o(:o)
