Check-in

  • Eric … I took another step on my video, recording it while walking in the forest with my dogs
  • Ben … I had a weirdly wonderful day yesterday (not all of it was wonderful, but the date with my non-girlfriend was wonderful) ... And right now I am exhausted from my 10 minute rowing machine exercise.

Opening Blessing

We live in a world that inspires us to both great praise at its wonder and great grief at the pain that suffuses it. May we find the best lives we can live in this duality of beauty and suffering. May we Bring Life. --Blessed Be

Year Plan

May Day

  • The Sanders can't celebrate it on the weekend of May 6 and 7 in Portland, because it's Shelley's birthday weekend.
  • Eric heard about a tree planting opportunity on the radio: Forests Ontario's 50-Million-Tree Program (http://www.forestsontario.ca/community/get-involved/volunteer/)
    • Ecology Ottawa (https://treeottawa.org/) doesn't have anything advertised, although they are talking about experimenting with injecting garlic into trees to ward off an invasive species

Summer Solstice

  • Ben thinks we should do an outdoor Drumming the Eons event simultaneously on both sides of the continent and connect them via Skype (Eric: ||||,)

September trip

  • The Aviation and Space Museum is a good idea … they have simulators and biplane rides
  • Playing Martian Rails!
  • Bike ride in Gatineau Park and along the Ottawa River
    • See the fall colors in Gatineau, probably

  • Bike from Buckleberry to Grey Cliff and back (60 km each way!) (lots of fall colours)

Calendar

  • Ben: I would still like one for this year ... better late than never.
  • Eric: I have the dates largely prepared … you could choose the 8 images
  • Eric: This time we could each print our own

Image ideas

Evaluation

  • Ben … I like cool images and I am really looking forward to finally seeing Gatineau and Buckleberry.
  • Eric … I'm looking forward to showing you Buckleberry and Gatineau, and looking forward to making cool things with you like videos and calendars.

Closing Blessing

We came together in part to praise the wonder of this beautiful world. Through our work on documents that awaken within ourselves and others awe for the beauty of the world, we are doing that work. May we Bring Life. -- Blessed Be
