* ... I've been pretty sick since the show (just worn out not serious) and I haven't entirely known what to say, think or feel. I mean talking about all the joy, community and pure love from everyone would certainly be a great place to start. Alas, those truly magical moments and snapshots would number far greater than I could ever recall with all of you... or post about here. So for now, I won't even try. Instead, I want to say something about the extraordinary person standing with me in these two pics. I met her while working at my last life (2nd pic) ... introduced to me by my last (like family) "boss" and long story short, I always knew that when it was time for a new working life, this is the way it would go. I'm not writing this to blow smoke (that doesn't work with her anyway) and I'm not even going to tag her, so she won't know about this😉 I think Mary is extrodinary for many reasons, and I'm sure a lot of those reasons are the same reasons so many in this industry find her extrodinary as well. But I need to add one to the list... here it is ... I think Mary's extrodinary because there I am, standing right along side her on that magnificent stage. In front of thousands of passionate people who worked very long and hard to be sitting in that audience. Lord knows I sometimes almost say or do anything in the pursuit of laughs or entertainment😉 But she trusts me to walk in front of a community of Hairdressers she not only admires, she respects enormously. A community that has taken her 17 years to bring together. I think it's extrodinary that she lets me "stand" with her and the entire Behindthechair.com online community with an audience of millions. I think it's extraordinary that she trusts me with something so absolutely vital to her being. Everytime I see a pic of us on stage, I'm in awe all over again.
Thank-you everyone for attending this year in Austin, I'm still absolutely floating from our time together. I'm honored that I get to stand in front of all you, on stage and online. And thank-you to Mary ...standing with you and BTC is entirely extrodinary. ❤ - Kevin #iloveyou
