Dear Community,

I would like you all to pay close attention to the fact that as I’m writing e-mails to you… I am NOT shopping! Are you proud?

My wish for you is that as you are reading my e-mail, and then attending ALL these fantastic events, you, also, are NOT shopping!


By the way, since my last e-mail, I have heard exactly THREE versions of “Jingle Bell Rock” and they were all horrible.

The remedy is here:

HELP!!!  HELP!!!  HELP!!!  HELP!!!  HELP!!!

I have (foolishly) agreed to book back-to-back events on the evening of the 20th. PLEASE HELP!!! I need at least 3 people who can commit to cleaning up everything after Zikr at the Rocky Mountain Miracle Center… I also need at least 2 people who can commit to schlepping some stuff to the Mercury Cafe and getting ritual prepped before I can come rushing through the doors to lead the ceremony… Can you help?

Please contact me as soon as you can so I can coordinate details. THANK YOU!!!
