After spending a week at a science and religion conference with more than 100 people,
IRAS on Star Island 2010
I came home to my husband’s college reunion at our home, with about twenty of his college friends, some of whom he hadn’t seen for forty years.

This morning I was on a radio show about the upcoming series for women Growing Older, Growing Wiser: Becoming an Elderwoman –
and now I’m planning for the annual campout of Wellspring Haven.

The weekend after that, I’ll be attending a college reunion of my own.
Reunion, Callicoon 2009
It’s been an intense summer of gathering in communities of diverse people. And it will continue into September, when I’ll be attending a Céile Dé gathering.
So much richness, and so little time to blog about it!
This morning, before the granddaughters awaken, I am updating this blog a bit. On the “Gatherings and Services” page here, I added the meeting with author Marian Van Eyk McCain who, visiting this country from England in September, has graciously agreed to meet with people in this area. She wrote the book Elderwoman: Reap the Wisdom – Feel the Power – Embrace the Joy, and edited the newly released book GreenSpirit: Path to a New Consciousness. She has also written on living simply.
Last year I met Marian at a women’s conference, after getting to know her virtually through Elderwomanspace, the social network she created. Marian’s blog is listed at the right. I hope you’ll be able to attend this gathering with Marian at 2 PM on Sunday afternoon, September 12, upstairs in the Community Room at Real Food Market Co-op, 15 Church Street, Chatham, NY. (Please note: the Co-op is not open for business on Sundays.)
