Well, I am home after a wonderful Calecon. The first of what I hope is many. How can I describe this wonderful adventure except to say what a privilege to meet such wonderful, lovely, intelligent and generous spirited people in Real Life. This Calecon was special, because as Gabrielle Riel points out.. we were the first and the smallest. Delightfully we all liked each other so very much and we all had such a good time, partying, eating, shopping and of course learning. The best I can do is to copy and put in here the sentiments of my new found friend, Scotti Lyle (with my edit in regards to Kaye Robbiani as she is not my sister.. and of course adding my thoughts about Scotti herself)

Otenth -- kind and gentle, with the most amazingly beautiful brown eyes.
Gabi -- determined, capable, and what a great voice! Radio Riel is the perfect avocation.
Eva -- glamorous and gorgeous even in jeans -- but still just one of the gang. So fun!
Soliel -- so full of life, so full of ideas! Someone with whom you could share secrets.
Kamilah -- thoughtful, generous, a lion with a servant's heart.
Elrik -- the techno-dude! smiling always, a good word for everyone, love listening to that charming accent!
Paeony -- A poet with a poet's heart. So sweet and easy to be around.
JJ -- Totally brilliant, knows something about everything or if JJ doesn't JJ can find it in a nanosecond. And has the most delightful smile! It lights up JJ's whole face.
Kaye -- 'A wonderful soul, intelligent, creative, heartfelt and possessing great humour, emotion and insight.
Scotti-- True Poet, and girl genius. Never fear Scotti the techno.. it is just a tool to get you where you want to go.

And now.. to the rest of the trip. I spent the rest of the trip on a soul journey that took me to the west coast where I had the deep honour to be reunited with my spiritual centre. It is from this journey that I share this wonderful song and lyrics from Pete Morton.. which came to me in my sleep the first night of a two day walk in paradise. And a step of faith out into the void.. learning to not look down.

Another Train
Words and Music - Pete Morton

The beginning is now and will always be,
You say you lost your chance and fate brought you defeat,
but that means nothing you look so sad,
You've been listening to those who say you miss your chance.

There's another train, there always is,
Maybe the next one is yours,
get up and climb aboard another train.

You may feel you're done, but there's no such thing,
although you're standing on your own, your own breath is king,
The beginning is now, don't turn around,
For regrets of bad mistakes will only drain you.

There's another train, there always is,
Maybe the next one is yours,
get up and climb aboard another train.

We crawl in the dark sometimes and think too much,
Then we fill our heads with the craziest things that only break our hearts.
I know you've seen what this earth can do,
When its dragging down another loads of us, us worrisome fools.

There's another train, there always is,
Maybe the next one is yours,
get up and climb aboard another train.

I know its hard, we can feel confused,
We can crown ourselves with it all, 'till we feel we cannot move,
building worlds that don't exist,
Imagination plays the worst tricks.

There's another train, there always is,
Maybe the next one is yours,
get up and climb aboard another train.

There's another train, there always is,
Maybe the next one is yours,
get up and climb aboard another train.
