This will be my first homecoming in Louisville. Does anyone want to share costs by sharing a room?

Convo this morning:

Husband: Well, looks like we're out of the heatwave for a while. No more 90s until after you leave, it seems.
Me: Oh great, then, I will escape to Kentucky!
(looks at weather in Louisville for next week)
Me: I will escape to Kentucky where it will be 90+ and also 80% humidity....

Nothing like a trip to Kentucky to help me appreciate all the perks of living in Colorado! Smile

At this moment, we are looking at highs around 80 for next weekend. Very pleasant compared to what we've had recently. Of course now that I have said it, I've jinxed it.

So long as it doesn't rain 79 inches again, I'll be happy.

Don't be deceived by the term "moderators."  They are actually very hard core.

Am I right, or am I not right?

Damn right I will!  Woof!  WOOF!!

Actually, we'll be in a circle, not a line, so that won't be an issue....and after hours anything goes, eh?

Those after hours convo's.

Yes  Smile

/ /

Arrived in Phoenix, AZ, and proceeded to do something silly.

Tackled Piestewa Peak in the middle of the day. It indeed was over 110F

But I wasn't the only one doing it. But everyone else looked well seasoned.

Started getting heatstroke symptoms. Couldn't breathe properly. Had enough water.

I persisted - with lots of rests - but eventually turned back near the top.

I would walk for 2-3 minutes, then stop for 10.  Rinse and repeat.

Everyone else was blasting it.

Chalk that up to lack of acclimatisation.

Cramp, and vomiting sensations.

Lesson learnt Arizona!

well - another year - another Homecoming over.

I don't know how it's possible - but this Homecoming was the best yet (that I've attended).

Just all the beautiful souls that were present.

Thank you again.

Thank you again.

It was possibly, in part, an inside job.  I.e., maybe you, being more mature and lovely than ever, were more able to take in the benefic energy, thus making it seem better than ever?

Anyhow, I do share your appreciation.  It was surely catalytic for moi, in various good ways. 

A further thought in the stream: it was way cool, by the way, to hear Q'uo being quoted as saying that they seldom encounter a group of seekers seeking so sincerely.  That kinda backs up your observation, eh?  And I think it says a hell of a lot about the quality of the dedication and organizational work done by Austin, Trish, Gary and their support team.

RE: Homecoming Gathering 2019 Discussion Thread
All the presentations this year were great, but two did stand out for me.

One was the Heart Circle (on Sunday morning), led by Trish.  This was the first time I've experienced this, and it is incredibly healing, when a safe space is created for this purpose.

The other standout was the drumming performance by Ken.  (also on the Sunday, after lunch).  I was just totally entranced by it.

/ /

Jim also channeled Q'uo late Sunday afternoon, with all the attendees acting as a collective 'battery'.  That's a lot of Love/Light charge!

Hopefully that will be transcribed and posted soon.

All in all, 2019 was a wonderful Homecoming.

Thanks everyone, for making it great.  (make Homecoming great again?? - tshirts for next year?)

RE: Homecoming Gathering 2019 Discussion Thread
Agreed, Eddie, Garry, Jonathan. Homecoming was exceptionally great this year. Personally I loved the multi-stage presentations, though I was surprised to find how many people the group fit into the living room. One wrong gastrointestinal move in there and it could have spelled disaster.

Seeing Lily on her feet and moving to the music during Ken's musical performance was particularly poignant.

Loved spending time with everyone. My only source of sadness is to those I couldn't spend time with. But it's always balanced by witnessing all the connections made and love and stories shared. Thanks to a 40-person circle for lifting human energies into the heart and beyond.
