the gathering at the rockwell tent

don’t know how i managed to do it, but i told him, “thanks so much for coming here!” and he, ever gracious, tells me, “no, thank YOU for waiting in line so patiently.”

i don’t blame him for saying that the filipinos have an “utterly terrifying enthusiasm.” every sentence he uttered was punctuated by an excited chorus of shouts and screams. but judging from his reaction and his blog entries, he loved every minute of it. people stuttered, froze, and even cried in front of him!

i actually felt sad when i  walked out of The Tent alone and not being able to share this moment w/ my fellow geeks J & M (yeah i admit i sometimes am)… i guess what amazed me the most is his humility and sincerity despite his intelligence, immense talent, fame, and superhuman ability to stay pleasant and humorous even after signing hundreds of books…i wish I’d been the one whose raffle ticket won herself a dinner with him…nevertheless, following THE master like a cult for years now in his writings and seeing him in flesh was one of the best highs i’ve ever had. the experience is another amazing addition to my memory bank.
