this weekend has changed those ideas in my head forever. i had the lucky chance to meet many folks from the forum here in SF during the weekend. all started by sharing a room with someone i know from tour (who is a member here but rarely posts). each day i seemed to meet more new folks. some at the hotel, some at the golden arrow, some at the shows even! ("hey man, by any chance are you funky420 from the furthur board?" "yes, are you wlewis??") that's how easy it was. sharing numbers and hotel info in private messages helped as well with communication. the last two nights we used our small furthur board community to our advantage and raged out all night with each other. we were looking out for each other, helping those that appeared to need help whether it was a mindfuck or a sip of water. the energy we held and distributed was great in quantity. i couldn't stop appreciating the gatherings we had, both inside and outside the venues. i could go on and on and i don't feel i really need to get into anymore detail other than i am truly thankful i was able to meet everyone i did this weekend. by the end of the weekend, everybody was more than just another person i see at shows. you became someone i find it hard to imagine not having at shows now.
back when we did the golden arrow west coast tour, we thought we were onto something. bringing that together with everyone else multiplied these feelings. i look forward to seeing everybody down the road. keep on dancin!!!
