I spent the weekend in the Sparkly Kingdom celebrating the entry into my 37th year with Goddesses, Gods, Princes, and Fairies, wood-nymphs, sprites and saints. We laughed, danced, expanded, included each other, and shared in the wormhole and cosmos' that we each contain. Needless to say it was an excellent birthday celebration!
Today is my actual birthday... and the only thing I want is to be able to be the change-maker, light-worker, connector, and creator that I am meant to be.
I know that bringing people together to share in the oneness that unites us all is my gift. I want to be be able to do it full time.
But instead, I have been subbing at the Montessori School because I have bills to pay. I feel in service watching over the munchkins like a part-time guardian angel, but it's not what I really want to be doing.
I want to be busily writing you this newsletter (as I do every Monday) to connect with you-- my people, my players, my loved ones near and far-- to share my truth with you in hopes that yours will be inspired too, so that you will understand how important you are because I truly believe we need each other.
I want to create a Come Play Truth or Dare Online Friday Challenge every Friday and give Awards and Accolades every Thursday.
I want to create the box set so that you can have your very own game to play at home.
I want to find a new venue for Southern Sierra Goddess Gathering 2017 and time to plan it. I need time. And time is money. When I have to work a "real job" to make money, I cannot give my time to my gift.
Then I found this woman and heard the "Ahhhhhhh!"
"Maybe there is another way?" she proposed...
Please let me introduce you to my new friend-to-be and current inspiration, Amanda Palmer.
When I heard Amanda's Ted-Talk, I felt the truth ding deep within my soul and I felt completely aligned with my integrity.
I highly recommend watching it, and it's only 13 minutes long, but the Cliffs notes are: she gives all of her music, books, and content away for free, all she asks in return is her fans' support, and that we are the media. (#WeAreTheMedia)
Here are links to her music and media (all pay what you want for it).
This may not come out as gracefully as it's my first attempt at doing things a little differently, but none the less... here goes:
There will be pre-planned opportunities to exchange some energy with Come Play in the form of crowd funding campaigns for specific projects coming this year, but in the mean time, I am asking for your support.
