Birthday

So… Friday is my thirty-sixth birthday.

I want lots of presence, not presents.

I’d like to have a chance to introduce a lot of you folks between many circles to one another. You’re all cool and amazing people. So here’s the deal:

Saturday, 22 July!

At Leah’s Place!
in Ashford, CT

The third annual Drum & Poetry Jam
from 6 pm until midnight
(or so, so we don’t annoy the neighbors).

RSVP

If you RSVP, you get directions to the location.
Otherwise, you don’t.

Bring a potluck item for all the people to share,
bring a poem, and bring a percussion instrument.

Dinner will be ‘served’ from 6pm-ish until it’s dark enough for a fire,
and then we’ll adjourn to the fire circle for drumming
interspersed with spoken word.

Birthday cake will be provided at some point.
Limited tenting will be available, for those who wish to stay overnight.

Special super-secret ice-cream trip to the place
that not only has its own ice cream but its own cows can be arranged
for late afternoon on the 22nd or early on the 23rd.

Those wishing to come early to help set the space are welcome.
