: :OK, now you've done it! I come in every Monday morning to anxiously check my e-mail and/or the board for the weekend updates and messages, and today all my co-workers think I'm a raving lunatic! That's because it is so unsettling to hear someone screaming, jumping up and down, running around and acting quite delirious first thing on a Monday morning (and that's before any coffee). This Eric Schweig news was too, too much and I regretably admit my exuberant elation was a little loud. So all my co-workers are now watching me with skeptical looks asking if I'm going to be OK and such. So now I have to act particularly sane for the rest of the day to recapture my good standing with these people.
: Seriously, though - Rich and Elaine, you never cease to amaze me. Thanks so much for all you (and everyone else) have done to make this Gathering so special. It will be my first, and I can't remember looking forward to anything this much in years. I was gonna get a raffle ticket there, but I can't take my chances of not getting one, so the money's in the mail today!
: Gosh ya'll, I'd have come even without all the great planned activities just to meet everyone and jaw about LOTM. You guys are over the top!!!
: Counting the days.......
Compose yourself, Diana! You have a reputation to protect.
Pretty amazing to see how one person can make so many others so happy! We ought to thank Eric Schweig for that, eh?
This worked out so well because of another event taking place in the Carolinas the same weekend. Eric is an invited guest of the American Indian Center of South Carolina. He'll be speaking to kids about redirecting anger into positive outlets such as art.
The Conference is being organized by Terence Lilly Little Water who has offered to work with us regarding Eric's travel arrangements so that he can be present for the Gathering as well.
Should be a very good weekend for a lot of people!!!!!
