Another Plan Shot to Shit...For Now

It's getting time to start gearing up for the Heat Fund again. I was trying to get a Talk Like a Pirate Day benefit together in late September. Since The Marina's rebuilt and the theme is pirates, I thought "Good fit." Except Daryl had already gotten them to donate a dinner a week for 30 weeks as a raffle to benefit the Heat Fund, and said raffle will be drawn in early September (Tickets are 50 bucks; let me know if you want in). Cancel the hitting up The Marina plans.

Also, nobody has volunteered to help at all. Which creates many unnecessary obstacles. No venue + No help= No Benefit.

Frustrating.

So maybe not pirates this year. Maybe pirates next September, and this December do something simple and sweet, like a Yule Log Vigil on Solstice Night. Or in February when the money always runs out, a Candlemas/Brigid's Vigil with a bonfire and drumming. Get the Pagan and hippie communities involved in a new charity. Now where to do that?.......

I don't know if we're gonna do the monthly recipe on the radio again this year. I gotta shoot Daryl a WTFIGO. Cuz I don't know WFTIGO. Loose organization is good when you're talking charity work, but ya gotta know what each other's doing. And it has to be planned. Not a rigid schedule, just a rough idea. Planning is everything when you're a gimp.

Where in town could we do a bonfire benefit without incurring the wrath of the Whiners?

Build a labyrinth using chalk or stones, spread the word and get everyone to walk it (sept full moon)charging a small fee. Research history and spirituality and make up small cheap leaflets, charge for this. It's fun and spiritual all at once!

Your blog was recomended by Rory the scottish scribbler - I like it very much!

Thank you Annie! Isn't Rory a darling? And thank you for the labyrinth idea, I think we have several around town, and maybe I could coax an owner into its usage... hmmm. Could work for any Sabbat, actually, Samhain, Brigid's...

Hey Lisa, would you attend something like that for charity?
