Here are the next 2 Comma Workshops:

August 13, Sunday 3pm-5pm: “Hearding Cats: Managing Group Dynamics and Energy” Workshop- Pasadena
This workshop will be a tip-of-the-iceberg discussion of planning and leading group ritual, creating and going with the flow, feeling and guiding group energy, and ritual etiquette for facilitators as well as participants.

October 15, Sunday 3pm-5pm: “Wicked: Portrayals of Witches Misunderstood” Workshop- Pasadena
Inspired by the book, “Wicked” — which we hope you will read before this workshop — we discuss the misunderstood women/witches of fact and fiction.

Book Time

I have to recommend a new book trilogy that I am totally enamoured with, Naomi Novik’s Temeraire series. If you like Patrick O’Brien and dragons you will probably like this series set at the time of the Napoleonic Wars. The English Navy captures a dragon egg from the French and so it begins.

Not as much Naval data as the Jack Aubrey series but lots of detail on the Dragon Aviator Corps. The series ranges from Britain to Africa to China then back through Turkey to Prussia and on.

Enjoy a new author!

I’m thinking of doing the previously un-thinkable… Cutting my hair.
I’ve had my hair long since I got old enough to tell my mother to mind her own business except for one excessively dykey period of a few years when I had either very short hair, (an inch long)or a mullet (ahhhhhhh, that was a mistake). Long, as in usually at least waist length and usually longer.

All the time I was a kid, mom kept it in this stupid pixie cut because she hated long hair. I have cowlicks that are matching devil/satyr horns when it’s too short. A mole which makes it stick straight out of the back of my head.

Anyway, the whiter it gets. It seems to be skipping grey and going straight to white, the more it breaks and misbehaves. But the hair is still baby fine and I have this vision that I will look like a giant dandelion or Albert Einstein without the bloodhound look.

First it was auburn and then it faded to a light brown and now it’s going white. And I suppose I shouldn’t bitch since Alison is way more white and 2 of my cousins have been all white since their 20’s.

But the darn stuff floats.

How shallow can one get? Worrying that you will look like a dandelion?
