      Thank you, Stacy! Thanks for enjoying the music. Oh, I need to brush up on lyrics as well, so no worries, just feel free to sing along. Its an acoustic 6 string guitar made by C.F. Martin, and its called "Backpacker"

    I really wanted to go to Parker Mesa Overlook. I would still like to go sometime during the day this week or next week. If anyone would like to go with me let me know at [masked]. If I can get a few people to go that would be great. At least I would feel better about not doing it alone.

    Drum circle was fun but next time I'm skipping the pot luck and bringing a picnic. Too much frenzy at the food table for what should be a mindful event

    This was a lovely hike with friendly people. Wright ranch and solstice ceremony and drum circle were awesome! So
    Much fun on that mountain top! Thanks John for organizing it.

      Hi Laurie. I am in Glendale, so if I go (I may have to cancel due to family) I'll let you know tonight, we can meet around hollywood and I'll drive...but I'm not staying for the potluck. I have visitors arriving from Europe and I'm waiting to hear if they are arriving at Noon or Midnight Saturday. So, as of now I'm going. Does this work for you?
