To you dear Singers and Weepers, Workers and Wanderers,

I call out to you to come and join us here as we begin another round of remembering how to let our hearts fill to overflowing with Grief and Praise. Join us as we begin another approach to Martín Prechtel’s beautiful, sweet book, The Smell of Rain on Dust.

Arrive so you have time to settle in with a cup of tea or a glass of delicious well water from up here on this dear ridge that some say was once known as the Place of the Deer by the Suquamish, when this was part of the lands they roamed as they followed the trail of the Salmon People.

We’ll begin at 7:00 and go ’til 8:30, or maybe longer if we just can’t help ourselves. Here’s a link to some writings about the book if you’re wanting a little more information to digest.

Enjoy the miraculous springtime transformations as they unfurl all around us,
