Burning Bright In The Forest Of The Night.

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
-William Blake, The Tyger



Comfort In Friendship.

“There is no happiness like that of being loved by your fellow creatures, and feeling that your presence is an addition to their comfort.”
-Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Uh, it was awesome.

I met some folks I’ve only known virtually, but whose work I admire fully.

Chief dropped by and we, of course, had to take a photo. And I finally got to meet Tim Burrows, retired Toronto PD Sergeant and all-around swell dude changing the face of law enforcement social media.

Icing on the cake? I was able to meet Michele Leonhard who is the Director of the DEA. While I know their stance on several areas is unpopular with some folks, I appreciated meeting a woman who holds such a high ranking position within the U.S. Government. It was fascinating to hear her story and how she tried to get into the Los Angeles Police Department back in the day.

Here’s to hoping I get to go attend in 2015!
