By golly, this month is looking so full! But the first few items are still August, which makes September seem a little less terrifying.

And the last three inches of text are my usual foolishness.

At any rate, I look forward to sharing many delicious circles with you this month starting with:


Events with Leilah between August 23rd and August 27th:

Leilah Be, Sufi teacher and DUP leader, will be attending and contributing to the regular dance programs with Timothy Dobson this Wednesday evening in Denver (Temple Events Center, 7:15 PM, $8 at the door) and this Friday evening in Boulder (I think it’s the Mennonite Church(?) one block east of Broadway and Lehigh, same time and price).

She is offering a full day workshop 9 AM to 4 PM in Boulder on Saturday ($75, contact Gwin Samia to register 303-847-1844, or aloharng@aol.com) as well as presenting at Spirit Keepers Sunday morning (Senior Center at 9th and Arapahoe in Boulder, 10 AM)

Her Zikr will be at the Starhouse Sunday evening (just west of Boulder up Sunshine Canyon, $10).

I just can’t sing Leilah’s praises sweetly or loudly or enthusiastically enough. Please come spend some time with her at any/all of these events.

If you’re interested in helping with the Mabon celebration, please contact me ASAP.

If you’re interested in helping with origami, balloon animal formations and/or paper airplanes, please contact someone else.

If you need directions, more information and/or to RSVP for any of the above hootenannies, please contact me ASAP.

If you need a new cellular phone, help with your cable TV or some new shingles for your roof, please contact someone else.

If you want to contact me, please call (970)224-4797 or e-mail rain@trigoddess.org.

If you want to contact someone else, try switching the first “9” and the last “7” or trade out the “rain” with the “org.”

Let me know how that works for you by abandoning the latter and resorting to the former phone number and e-mail address.

Y’all are so weird!

Many rainy Autumnal blessings to you and your kin,
