Followup to ConCon

Sadly I missed the meat and potatoes of the event, as I was called to work at the last minute on yet another outdoor weekend music event. I did manage to free up with barely enough time to race down to the event location and catch the very last few minutes of a discussion panel True was sitting on, and afterward we met for the first time face-to-face and sat and chatted for a short bit. Not the way Id hoped for, but it was better than missing him altogether yet again.

True is indeed tall. Someone to look up to, quite literally. We didn't really get too much face time one on one, as other eventgoers stood around while True fielded their questions. The event ran long, and being from a timezone a few hours ahead I can understand why he didnt feel like staying up any later to have any indepth chats. I passed him some reading material from the event Id just been to, and we shared a few humorous comments. Perhaps Ill discuss this a bit in tomorrrows show.

Few things in my world measure up to meeting someone of such stature and integrity in my view, and this experience, however brief, was one of those Ive been looking forward to for years, and one I will not soon forget.

Thank you True for taking the time to meet with me, its great to put a visual contact experience finally to the name and the voice. I am again honored.
