Biannual means twice a year. A synonym of semiannual. I promise you this much having scoured the dictionary to be sure it didn’t mean something that occurs every other year. That word, to the credit of those who framed the English language, bears no resemblance to biannual. Impossible to cross wires or mistake it for the word we have chosen to describe the timeframe in which our meetings happen. Thankfully biEnnial sounds nothing like biAnnual.
With that business out of the way, it comes as a pleasant treat to all of us at Luceo to have bumped our meeting timeframe up from once to twice a year. We’ve been that busy and, in spite of our weekly conference calls, the lock-in method for getting stuff done just can’t be replaced.
This summer we took advantage of the days following the Look3 festival to book up a hotel suite, order in some pizza, and hash out the big plan for the next six months. No announcements are forthcoming just yet, but the meeting minutes span some six pages of single-spaced fun and our listserve is popping like its got a fresh new set of sparkplugs.
It’s interesting that after 14 hour days of talking about photography that everyone would be so compelled to blow off steam by picking their cameras up off the ground to make more photographs. No rest for the weary, or something like that. Could be OCD, could be a nervous tick, but it’s exciting to see that we have no shortage of enthusiasm for the practice of making pictures.
