the worms crawl in, the worms crawl out

Dear Circlers, Squarers and Triangulars,
Welcome to a brand spanking new year!
There are, again, some changes in the schedule for January, so please pay extra special attention to the man behind the curtain.

Going into 2008, I would love to invite some help from all of you for growing the Dance of Universal Peace circles. It would be great to pull together a committee of DUP lovers to brainstorm and plan some efforts to publicize, energize, and expandicize the circle. If you are interested in helping out with this endeavor either just by sharing thoughts or by taking on some tasks to implement the thoughts, please let me know asap. I’ll be scheduling a time to meet in the next week or two. Thanks!
