Wed Fest: Headers of RGBP
This is my favorite photo of the headers on the RevGalBlogPal site. There were soooo many contenders! I loved the three backs of heads on the back patio of one of the BE events, all of the beloved faces listening to Carol Howard Merritt, Mary Thorpe blessing a pet, and the one of Liz dressed as an elf (I really want to know the back story to that one!). This one wins for me though.
Why? I have met Wil in person a couple of times, and I love reading her blog, fb posts and tweets. That's not it though. What I really love about this photo is her sense of presence in that space. She is THERE - fully - a real pastoral and authoritative presence. I aspire to this sort of presence on my best days - some days I can do it, other days, *ahem.* This is a beautiful picture on many different levels, most of all because of Wil being Wil - Dr. Gafney, to us mere mortals. She is awesome.
