On the road again: Aspen, Colorado conference facilitation

Am writing this from the Phoenix airport, waiting to board a flight to Aspen, Com, where I am working with my 5ive partners to facilitate a small conference with an interesting futurist theme.
I’ve used the changeable climate and the mountain elevations as an excuse to pack most of my summer wardrobe, secretly believing that one of the things that happen when you bring people together for a few days who don’t know one another that well is that they all change their clothes three times a day.
Tonight is the opening reception at the home of the owner of the swanky Caribou Club, then tomorrow we get down to it—I expect to get a ballroom sunburn (i.e. never stop working) for the next few days—my partners have done so much of the prep work on this project, I want to now pick up all possible slack.
