we know (we don’t know), finally!! (already?)
we’ve patiently waited 4 whole seasons for the next Winter Gathering on the edge of our seats, and here it comes. we’re drowning in birthday cakes, but we are so excited to announce that wg#10 is gonna touch so many extremes at same time you won’t know which way is up!! we’ve missed you all so much, and we can’t wait to cozy up on the proverbial bear-skin rug. last year we went our separate ways just as a snowstorm that only a chickadee could brave came a-raging. come back, it is time! this year we’re going to have all of the 90′s Detroit Pistons ‘Bad Boys’ come to autograph your basketball! of course if that doesn’t work out, there’s always plan b: birds, boardgames, or bedlam, be there to believe it! we’re just bums banking on brighter burns and bigger battles…
YES, once again we are taking shelter in the arms of our gracious friends and holding our gathering at The Book Exchange in prison city (aka Jackson, MI!) we feel alive alive alive when we make new memories in a familiar place.
this winter gathering will feature thee abundance: enticing musicians, open mic time for sharing tales and stories (bring one!), scrumptious potluck fare (bring some!), childcare and kids activities, outdoor games, secret plans, perhaps a little mystery, and scream-cry therapy in the prairie with peace & harmony… and of course a midnight hike to dunk our heads in the cool waters of the Grand River (watch out for broken glass!)
