  1. Jessie says:

    So many good things to choose from! I’m already looking forward to being here next week.

  2. Th. says:


    I’m depressed. Why can’t all these wonderful things happen in the summer when I have more freedom?

  3. Jessie says:

    I’ve driven from Utah to Berkeley and back in one weekend. It can be done :)

  4. Tyler says:

    @Th. Ah, who needs free time…

    And for anyone interested: the Poetry Readings from Fire in the Pasture are a bit skiwompus, so I’ve listed them here with a poster I put together to advertise these unique readings.

  5. Tyler says:

    (Correction: that should say “the Poetry Readings from Fire in the Pasture LISTS are a bit skiwompus…”)

  6. Amen to Theric’s comment,and I KNOW Charlotte England. She was in the first ward that Jeff and I attended as a married couple. Beautiful, wonderful person…extra jealoys :(w

  7. Argh, I am so frustrated with this android keyboard.

  8. Scott Parkin says:

    Wish I could attend. Sadly, it’s scheduled against Utah’s state political conventions and those of use who are delegates (or candidates) will be in Salt Lake City for most of the day.

    Maybe I can come late…

  9. Jonathan Langford says:

    Please note corrections to the poetry reading sessions on Saturday.
