A memorial for Patchoulia
Posted 27 November 2010 - 06:45 PM
With the passing of someone we all loved so much, it just doesn't seem right to not have a gathering to celebrate her life, love, wit, banter, and overall amazingness.
Mamapajama has generously opened up her home to anyone whom is interested in getting together. She lives in Queensbury NY, which seems like a good 'halfway point' for a lot of us.
Saturday 12-11 at 2:00pm will be the memorial. It'll be *** luck style, but please don't keep not having something to bring from joining us.
For those of you who are traveling Wende has opened up her home to all of us to stay. Just be sure to bring sleeping gear.
Friday night 12-10 RMB will be playing in Saratoga Springs (which is the same town that Wende lives in). I thought it might be nice if you can travel that day to see some music together.
For addresses and more info feel free to pm me here (I just don't feel right posting people's addresses on the interwebs).
Please pass this info on to anyone who you think would be intersted in attending.
ps....can a vibeguide sticky this?

I'll totally be there. I'll be up on Friday dancing to Ry's band. Every motion of dance will be dedicated to Julia. As some of you know, I dont dance much but I will at RMB.
If anyone is in the city and needs a ride, I can pick you up at the Poughkeepsie train station and drive you to the memorial events and back.
~~lots of love to Julia and family~~

My kids'll be gone that weekend and we have 2 new bedrooms to share. That makes 5 extra bedrooms. Yay!!
I think a picture collage would be a great idea too.

Mamapeej, you've got mail and assistance with veggie goodies if there's anything special we can bring!

you could take the train to Poughkeepsie......... and I'd provide you with transportation.
i think I will be going, Nicole. But for Saturday...I need to figure out logistics, but if I can make it, I would love to have you along
Thanks guys... Dani, I would most likely go up with you if you decide to go. I'd love to make it there for Friday night, and might take you up on your offer Ry, if Dani cant make it.. but thats a LOT of money (like $80) in train fare!!!
we've got some time.. hopefully something would work out.

You guys renew my faith on a regular basis here.
All the things that really matter surely are demonstrated here in this virtual community...
as it has grown from/ with a physical community.

a community that has helped several of us here (those living with temporal lobe epilepsy, those who love someone with TLE, or both) can be found at http://braintalkcomm....play.php?f=144.
when i first joined our board (Terrapin) one of the first things i discovered was my first support system for TLE - i never personally knew anyone else who had it until a thread here on the boards got some of us talking one day. so i really appreciated that connection to Julia and others, then, and figure we need each other more than ever right now.
if anyone would like more TLE information or support, please check out that forum, or feel free to reach out to me personally. i know how confusing it can be, and how alienating at times, and i don't want anyone else to feel that way if i could help in some way. my thanks to Sarah B. for telling me about that other message board, way back when. it was needed and very much appreciated

update-y: we're definitely in for Saturday. Friday RMB's a possibility, but not a probability, though we'll probably try to head up on Friday night regardless, if our hosts are willing to have us for two nights (to be determined)
we'll bring lots of hugs and vegetarian chili and some Julia-approved music to share.
 you're very welcome, Gordon.

I have been daydreaming about food: we, of course, should have holyguacamole, smarties, cute little lunch plates and lasagna sandwiches and broccoli dishes and whatever croutons and vegan salad dressing recipe I saw this week-end that she had posted. ffta
I am sure whatever shows up will be just fine but thought I would share my daydreams because they made me smile.
