Viventibus Galaxia

Sol's story has begun .. but it is only the beginning. The story continues with life, starfaring life, Green fire flowering as it spreads across our immense galaxy!

(Light some alcohol in a galaxy-shaped indentation in a clay plate, with powdered boric acid to make a green flame)

In our journeys we encounter other life. Biospheres and beings as precious as we, Joining us as fellow travelers on the great upward spiral.

(After the green fire dies down, do an upward-spiral gesture starting with your finger over the galactic center)

Then comes intergalactic life! Shaping entire star systems. Sailing them across the great gulfs between the galaxies!

Invitation for Solstice (Meetup etc)

Moment of Solstice is 3:03 PM PST, 18:03 EST

Who we're inviting

  • Ben: My inclination has been to invite anyone who's interesting and interested
  • Brandon: I've been thinking of these events as our time to do what we do without having to explain ourselves to others
  • Eric: But the more we invite people in, the more people we'll have and the less explaining we'll need to do
  • Brandon: I agree
  • Ben's list so far:
    • Hank (need to try again)
    • Lion
    • My parents
    • Their friend Ken and Margaret from Goldendale
    • Jan Keller, a friend from Bioneers
  • Others to invite:
    • Windward people
    • Jude
    • Ted and Celeste
    • Gus

What we're doing

Invitation text

You're invited to a celebration of the Winter Solstice -- the longest night of the year! In terms of day length, it's all uphill from there, but there are advantages to darkness: if you go to the right...

Evaluation

  • Eric … I'm so relieved to get back on a call after a 3-call gap … I want to assure you guys that SolSeed is in my heart all the time
  • Ben … This didn’t feel like a very productive call … sometimes were just not in a very productive mood/state and we have to forgive ourselves for that
  • Brandon … Sorry, distracted by SolSeed but nevertheless distracted (also distracted by Ben’s spelling fixes)
