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!

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:
