Dear Darling Sweethearts, Sorry I'm so slow this month. I've been traveling. Thanks to the ladies who showed up for Mama Sing this morning even though I never e-mailed the announcement. You girls are awesome! Change is in the air. Today is Lughnasadh, first harvest, letting go into Autumn, believe it or not, like it or not. Here's what I'm cooking up in my very hot kitchen: PENDING - Thursday evening Dance of Universal Peace in Fort Collins - I'm working on setting up a happy home for a new weekly dance. Of course, I'll let you know the exact details, but the idea is: every Thursday, 7:30 to 9:30, hopefully near Old Town, each evening will be an inter-faith DUP experience with 30 minutes or so of Zikr somewhere in there. Start clearing out your Thursday evenings. It may start as early as the 11th of August.

Friday, September 2nd - Chant - 7 PM - 5000 Boardwalk #13 - $7 suggested donation Kind of a skinny month, eh? I'm sure you'll find lots of BBQ parties to fill up your spare time. And if you just don't know what to do with yourself, try fly fishing. You can take the hook off the end so fish just enjoy chasing around the lure, fling around pretty flies, get some good wrist exercise and enjoy freezing your knees, legs, ankles and feet off. Woo-hoo! If you still don't know what to do with yourself, I'd love to get my house re-painted. Want to come help? Feel free to contact me about pretty much any old thing. If I don't want to help you out, I won't return your call: (970)227-5275. Cheerio! Cap'n Crunch! Cornflakes! Raisin Bran! Cocoa Puffs! Froot Loops! Granola! Sára! (970)227-5275 firstname.lastname@example.org P.S. Why are dried plums called prunes, dried grapes called raisins, but dried figs are figs, and dried dates are dates? Matara and I have re-named them. Dried figs are now "grimbles" and dried dates are now "draves." Pass it on.
