This year, 2008, Dreamtime celebrated her 7th anniversary. Dreamtime is a uniquely Colorado festival in Paonia.
After the Rainbow Gathering, I got a hold of the management at Dreamtime and they scholarshipped us for a “Prophecy Campus” at Dreamtime 2008. The timing was sweet and no one can say there isn’t spontanaety at Dreamtime. This festival is small but real sweet. Victor and Josiah joined me, and together we built a little shanty shelter and set up a stove and a lantern and that big orange tent.

I was milling through some stuff that I thought was lost after my last move and I found this article I wrote back in 1995. It is pretty good stuff and really, really digs into the authority, or lack there, of the Hands of the Cause under the guardianship of Shoghi Effendi.

We just celebrated the 12th day of Ridvan. These 12 days are in celebration of the the 12 days Baha’u’llah spent in the Garden of Roses in Baghdad culminating in His proclamation in 1863. We had a great feast, lots of Baha’is showed up, including the Guardian, Neal Chase. There were excellent readings and prayers and a sweet presentation. The food, both spiritual and physical, were delicious.
