Conference and Cheetahs

South AfricaPosted by Marie Nov 20, 2009 21:35:52

The conference is over and it went so fast. Too fast. I did my presentation today and it felt good. It's really difficult to say everything in such a short time. I appreciate that I was accepted as a presenter: I really like to talk to an audience but I would have liked to have time for more questions. However, I was a bit afraid of getting long questions: some people here made long speeches instead of asking straight questions and it was surely difficult for the speaker to discern the question in the mass of words.

To speak for a long time is easy and the shorter the time the more preparation is requested. After all, with shorter time for presentations, the more presentations to listen to.

Yesterday I went to the cheetah compound and patted three darling kittens. I remember the names of two of them: Heathcliff and Felix. I like the fact that meeting these wonderful felines is on their terms.
