Images from Gulf Wars -- for my non-SCA friends, here's what camping in the "current middle ages" looks like in the forests of Mississippi. For my SCA friends in Caid, you have to try to make it to Gulf Wars some year! It's a lovely event!

What do you have planned for this Sunday afternoon? Sunday, November 9, 2014 (1-4 PM) -- Please accept our invitation to a FREE Potluck / Picnic / Storytelling Concert in the Park! "True Thomas the Storyteller" will be performing a variety of stories, in character and in costume... AND FOR VIDEO! We would love to have as large an audience as possible.

The park is located at 1379 East Janss Road Thousand Oaks, CA 91362, at the Willow Bend location. The performances (including possibly some guest performers!) will be from 1-4 PM. Please feel free to bring your own personal picnic, bring a few things to share, and be prepared to enjoy drinks and snacks from all of us. [If you could label your potluck shared items with ingredients, that would be most helpful.] 

You can bring your own chairs if you are more comfortable, some chairs will be available for those who cannot bring their own. The stories will be "good for all ages" although sometimes the youngest among us may be happy for the nearby playgrounds. This is outdoors in a park, so please check the weather report to know how many layers to wear. grin And the audience is likely to be in some of the video footage. 

The whole concert is being presented for two reasons: To say THANK YOU to all the supporters over the years and to compile a video demo tape that can be shared on the internet. So again, THANK YOU ALL for coming and supporting a Professional Storyteller in his element.

There's nothing quite like going out with more than a dozen Santas to a dinner establishment or walking next door to Jack-in-the-Box for lunch. EVERYONE wants to take a picture of them, all together. :)

Here's how I keep my sanity: #ThisBody   #ThisDay  -- not in competition with anyone else. Not in competition with any former version of myself.

Hats in the Park: I want to thank Google Photos for the "Auto-Awesome" animated gifs created that truly summed up the finale at True Thomas the Storyteller's Concert in the Park today. No seriously. These capture everything about this twisted fairy tale. :)

How do I spend an hour in the airport? Plying my yarn on a drop spindle and making a time lapse movie, of course. 😀 This yarn is now imbued with ATS® happiness. 💜

It seems I created the bracelet method in a vacuum... No one I know was doing it. But several friends have adopted it. I still need to make a nice How-To video for YouTube. This time lapse was a test. <3
