Dress for the Occasion

I did something really scary tonight. And I survived. I gave an introduction in a large room to a crowd of 500 people. The scariest part about it was that I didn't know I was going to do it until the last minute. I could not even dress for the occasion (though luckily I felt well-dressed enough that I didn't have the urge to run home just to change)! We hosted Jonah Lehrer at Town Hall Seattle and the Executive Director was out for a funeral. It was on me to introduce Jonah. As I said, it was very very scary and I survived. In fact, I think I did an awesome job!!

By the way, this photo is a representation of what the crowd of people looked like to me. Going on and on for miles.


  1. My hat is off to you, Anna! I can imagine how scary, knees-go-weak scary, it must have been to give a speech infront of the crowd of perfect strangers! By the way, a very interesing photographic metaphor for the crowd!

  2. wow well done! doing things like that can be scary! not that i myself have tried speaking to a crowd of 500 people! impressive. i like the visualization of the roof tops
