Sunny. 74°. 0% chance of rain. The forecast continues …

“… with an abundnace of free food and wine, music and poetry, bubbles, balloons and breezes. Blankets and pillows!”

Dolores Park. 3pm. Look for balloons.

Bring food, bring instruments, bring $ because the new sPARKLE & bLINK is too beautiful not to buy ($10) and it costs $3 to get in to Mina Dresden (7pm).

We have a heap of new readers this month and we won’t exaggerate but this show will astonish even the devoted zealots among us. No joke. Tomorrow, we will casually perform a communal feat of expression. Will it be more fun or impressive?

This Labor Day, try equal parts fun and impressive. Now that’s a cocktail!

Now, to make some fresh honey whole wheat loaves with currants and/or dried apple rings, some habanero hummus and surprise hummus and mint chutney for sandwiches. We can’t wait to see you and picnic and play. Tomorrow!

PS. If you can’t make it to the park, come to the show (and vice versa).

PPS. Mina Dres is 312 Valencia St near 14th.

QLabor Day

Heres your Labor Day lineup, word fans:

[reader info]

Join us @ 3 for a picnic in Dolores Park. We will be the ones with the elephant just kidding. We’ll be the large attractive group. Maybe we’ll have balloons.

We’re bringing books and musical instruments and food (for about 2 doz) and a case of wine. Please bring some food to share—otherwise it will just be a pot picnic. No luck? You got it…

We’re also bringing blankets and pillows, because at 7pm we will walk over to Mina Dresden Gallery, where the stellar lineup above will wow us all into making large donations to Quiet Lightning. That was a faulty sentence! There are no chairs. Do you understand? Pillows!

Maybe we’ll all go over to Zeitgeist again after the readings like last time. That was fun.

» sPARKLE & bLINK got a makeover this month. New size. Can’t wait to see it! Can you? Artwork by our new friend Cat Soldier.

Everyone can learn about magic and serendipity. Come along!
