I think we should hold an annual meeting somewhere, like a reunion of poets and meet in person...I know other clubs do...like hells angels, and the Roller Coaster lovers...rocket lovers etc...it would be great publicity for Passions too!

hey I'll bring my famous home made baked beans!

We held our first annual "Passions Unmasquerading" in Washington DC last September.... We had about a dozen people in attendance, and we're more than ready for a second...

Doreen was a wonderful hostess for the first session, and can certainly give some invaluable input on the planning issues.  We've talked about having one on Cape Cod - and of course that would be fine with me... We're also open to other suggestions - Let's brainstorm on this thread and make it happen... YEAH!!!

I'd like to see it in a more central location so more people can afford to go...

Chicago...hmmm...major airline hub...cheap fares...then we board a bus for a 10 hour ride to Colon, Magic Capital of the World..we descend on the poor townsfolk who become enchanted with our poetic ways and continual hugging...they rename Colon to the Poetry Capital of the World, we get in the Guinness book of World records..with a photo and for all time Colon will be known for our exploits...we will go back each year at the same time (like Swallows to Capistrano) and make poetic together....(we interrupt this fantasy to bring you a word from Sharon's brain) "please excuse PdV, as she had had too much caffeine today!".....

Sven, the population of Colon is actually pretty used to it. Every Autumn, we are swarmed by several thousand magicians for a week, and thousands more of visitors driving in daily to see the magic shows and, perhaps, buy their own illusions. It's a zoo!

I've now lived through two Magic Festivals since moving here, and I still haven't figured out where the influx of entertainers stay for five days. The nearest hotel is about 30 miles away. I keep picturing a corn field somewhere, tucked behind one of our lakes and covered with a few thousand tents...

Love and hugs,

Hmm..I may be a little late with this response but...
I think this is something like Devine said, but I think if we get a very rough list of people who may be attending we could narrow the location down better. In the middle somewhere for sure.  As for Devine's first list, Biloxi is of course closest to me, but Nashville wouldn't be such a big problem either.  I haven't checked the others.  ahh well..I'll follow this in hopes this can happen again soon. I don't want to miss this one.   Laters everyone.

Hmmm....Niagara Falls is not far from me,(50 miles) beautiful any time of the year......  Course, Attica prison is a little closer, (20 miles) but.... guess no one would want to go there!!!! Bonnie

Nashville might be interesting.... Hey Brian Long runs a hotel near there somewhere... hehe... We could fix his wagon by descending on his place..... That'd get him in the Passions mode....Whatcha think, Temptress??

Yep, Nan.   I think Nashville would be great, and Brian most definetely needs a Passionate Mode.   I haven't seen him for a while, have you? Do we need a search party?   I'm getting excited just thinking about all of this!   I can't wait to see where this thread takes us.

The chances of me making it to this is probably nil if I have to fly. Now soome where in Michigan I could probably do cause I could drive. I guess it all depends on when this shindig would be happening as to where or not I would be able to make it. *sigh* I would love to hang out with everyone for a few days.   Ah well if not this year maybe next.  


After thought.....Niagra Falls is only 2 hours from me as well. Definately could make it if it were to be there.

Salina, Kansas, one of the "America" Cities...home of the BiCentennial Center and big-name draws...holds 6000 plus seats... currently home of the Kansas Cagerz National Basketball League...about as MIDAMERICA as you all can get, and Salina even hosts its own airlines...now then, if you want ART you would start thinking ahead to Smoky Hill River Festival 2001 [current one is scheduled for June 8,9,10,11 and probably a little too short on advance notice for you artisitic types] where there are traveling storytellers, lots and lots of arts of all times, great bands of all sorts from ...

well, heck, check it out yourselves at http://www.riverfestival.com/2000/index.html  and see if Salina is a place for future Passions in Poetry Reunions....

As far as I can see, the only thing the Smoky Hill River Festival has ever been missing is a bunch of poetic types...

Hugs to all, Sunshine...

Wouldn't you just all love to come to the City of Brotherly Love.....sure you would! Don't believe all the news reports and surveys that indicate that it is the unfriendliest place on earth.....well, heck, if we had a winning sports team, everybody would be much nicer.....hehehehe...but hey, I could give you all a tour of the Liberty Bell (since Michael visited and was ringing it though, they have since encased it in glass....hehehe), The house of Betsy Ross, our world famous Art Museum, ya know, the one where Rocky ran up the steps in the movie? Also, the place where they signed the Declaration of Independance (the name escapes me at the moment....but I know where it is....hehehe....and of course I could introduce you all to the wonders of Philly food, Philly cheesesteaks, the best in the world, real soft pretzles, Hoagies (called submarine sandwiches in places like New York).....the best you'll ever have! The cost of living is better here than in most large cities, too, so your money will go a little further......have I sold anyone yet? Hey, maybe we could all go to a Philies game and meet the Philly Fanatic.....he's a real scream!! Oh well, I tried!!! LOL

Ron,
    I know that the people of Colon are used to having many tourists. . .but those are magicians. . . we're poets!!!  

The two are definitely not the same!!!  (Although I can make money disappear real well!!)
