California Dreamin'

Tomorrow, I head down to California for the weekend. Sarah P and I will be flying together into Oakland to spend the night at my Grandmother's house and meet my new cousin. On Friday afternoon, we are getting a ride from Friends down to Quaker Center for the weekend program "Reclaiming the Power of Primitive Quakerism for the 21st Century." I posted this note in the QuakerQuaker discussion about the program:
Hello all and greetings from Seattle. I am really excited about this event and I think it's going to be a lot of fun. I am not sure what to expect, but I am looking forward to meeting everyone, worship, time in the woods, and talking with others who are interested in where Friends are going. I am also thrilled to be traveling with my f/Friend Sarah P because I hardly ever get to see her. We'll do what we can to represent all the good folks in the Pacific Northwest!
Because I am hoping to spend as little time online as possible over the weekend, I doubt I will be blogging from Ben Lomond. I have this funny image in my head of all the Quaker bloggers running for their computers at the end of each workshop. Not my idea of a relaxing time! I hope that we will have time to settle and listen, in spite of the siren song of technology. And although I am not planning on posting while I'm there, I expect I will have a lot to write about when I get back!

    Blogging at the end of workshop sessions? Huh? I thought we were all going to be live twittering the workshop. Robin, Wess and I are going to be broadcasting from a coffeeho... errr... "undisclosed location" in Santa Cruz and beaming it to Ben Lomond. Didn't you get the memo?

    We'll stay out of Santa Cruz then. It will be a pleasure to meet you. Safe travels and see you tomorrow night! God bless, Martin.

  2. Whoops, I meant funny image IN my head. So much for proofreading.

    Hmm, twittering . . . I think you all are a little too high tech for me! See you tomorrow!

  3. Ashley, I had a similar sense about not wanting to blog while there. Too many people to talk to in real time! Plus, I'll be the primary parent on call since Robin's going to be otherwise occupied. I look forward to meeting you.
