Oh… looking ahead to fall… The Women’s Retreat at Camp Santa Maria is on the books again! Woo-hoo! Hurray! Hurrah! Please mark your calendars, ladies, September 9 to 12. You can get the flyer and registration form on-line, and you can even pay the registration fee through paypal, if that strikes your fancy.

And… I’m thinking about offering a monthly mini-Sufi-retreat… for an afternoon/evening. What do you think? Want it?

In case you are concerned about the approaching warm weather, I just want to assure you that several things that you are accustomed to having hot, are also quite nice cold. For example: coffee, tea, chocolate, pizza, cookies, apple pie, spiced rum, oatmeal (maybe not the oatmeal), and revenge.
Plus, everyone’s just a little happier and a little nicer when they can start wearing less clothes. Just saying.
Let me know if you want to join us for new moon, and your thoughts about an on-going Sufi thing-a-ma-whatsit.
Love and joy and happiness and bright sunshine with decreasing chance of showers and absolutely no flooding.
