And here are a couple things you might be interested in:
â€¢ Would you like to join us for another community campout? The dates for this summer have been set! Please mark you calendars: June 8, 9 & 10! More info will be forthcoming as the time draws near (does time draw?).
â€¢ Yvette Connell, an apprenticing Healing Touch Practitioner, needs to offer 50 more sessions to complete her training. Healing Touch is a relaxing, nurturing energy therapy in which gentle touch assists in balancing your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. If you are interested in a session (by donation), call her at (970)481-9508. Her healing space is above the Garment District in Ft Collins. Appointments Tuesday, Friday and Saturday.
â€¢ Tuatha is playing at Avogadroâ€™s Number in Fort Collins â€“ Saturday, February 24th â€“ the evening opens at 7 PM with Tribal Electra â€“ Cover is $7 â€“ bring your dancing shoes.
â€¢ Finally, I would love your assistance. I am looking for an office space to rent for my Spiritual Mentoring work. The training program Iâ€™ve been thoroughly enjoying is coming to an end this month and I am looking forward to setting up a more formal practice. If you have any leads on a Fort Collins rental, please let me know. Also, if you are interested in experiencing Spiritual Mentoring either one-on-one or in a group, please do contact me. I would love to get another group started soon. Thank you!
Gosh, I hope I didnâ€™t forget anything. If I did you can always contact me to complain or ask clarifying questions: firstname.lastname@example.org or (970)224-4797.
I apologize for the events Iâ€™m missing and/or canceling due to my travel plans this month.
And hereâ€™s my blessing for the widely celebrated, greatly revered, deeply inspired holiday of the Groundhog!
May the woodchuck awake
And with a tail shake
Greet the day
All cloudy and gray
So she can say,
â€œIâ€™ll stay out and play!â€
Send winter away
So we can careen
Into a green
And glorious spring
Hip hip hurray!
Okay, so itâ€™s a little lame, but I think it works. Give me a break!
