I have returned from DucKon.
The short version: it was a very good time, and good for me. There were some problems and frustrations, but despite there being a lot of excess stress in the air, I managed to be feeling good most of the time, and when I wasn't it was mostly by being overwhelmed. There was a fantastic amount of music. Because I was so busy with the music, I missed a lot of other activities that I also wanted to be at. I got a lot of hugs and brief moments with people I want to be with, which is really good.
A bunch of things went wrong at this con. As people are dealing with the aftermath, please remember that a lot more things went right. I saw a whole lot of people having a good time.
