PSA: whereabouts of the freeples

Tomorrow morning we're flying to St. Louis for house hunting. We'll be back Saturday afternoon.

We then have a week to pack like crazy. Friday the 27th we're picking up the moving truck, packing it up (hopefully with the assistance of many of you lovely folk) and hitting the road either Sunday the 29th or Monday the 30th. If time permits, we may make a brief appearance at OLOTEAS on Saturday - but don't count on it :(

Seattle folk: I know we've been kind of invisible for a while; between my back injury and toddler parenting, it's been very hard for us to have any kind of a social life. But we'd really like to see as many of you as possible before we leave, whether you can help out or not. We'll be here most of the time between the 21st and the 28th - just drop an email or call if you want to stop by and say hi and goodbye....

Anyway, we'll then be taking a slow drive cross-country (so as to mitigate the stir-craziness of the toddler and hence the parents) and shooting to arrive in St. Louis sometime between April 1 and April 3. We'll be unloading the truck between when we get there and the 5th. blondeone93 has been rallying the troops of Samadhi Camp to help us out on that end :)

Andrei starts work at Mobile Armor on the 6th.

So that's our next three weeks. Are we having fun yet?

Regarding your earlier question: sorry we haven't responded until now, but the fact is, we don't know yet. We can't schedule a signing until we have the books in hand, and the printer is currently running several days behind on the delivery. Once we have the books, we'll know when we can arrange those signings. We hope you'll be involved; it looks good for mid-next week, but we still don't actually have the books yet. :(

We'll miss you guys.

*more hugs*

St Louis! Wow!

I'm an old friend of your parents', I met you at Boscon 2001 (I think). I've not kept in touch with your Mom, but I saw your Dad just a few months ago. I am also a fan of your art.

I live in St Louis myself, and I'm fairly familiar with the pagan and the arts communities here. Please get in touch while you're house-hunting. I can point you to neighborhoods you might like. (For the most part, St Louis is a shining blue island in a red sea... but we do have some areas you'll not be comfortable in.)

Also, check out my friend ysabetwordsmith's LJ. She's a former editor of PanGaia magazine, poet, author, and warrior for truth who lives about one hour east of St Louis in rural southern Illinois. I really think you'd like her.

(I replied to this earlier, but was having technology issues, apparently....)

We ended up in Ellisville (near Ballwin). Seems to be a nice area, and really close to a good school for Aiden as well as Andrei's work. Hope it's not one of the places you would have suggested we stay away from!

Anyway, yes, I remember you (or at least my parents talking about you). Looking forward to reconnecting once we get into town.

Ellisville is a typical conservative white suburban area, so it's not exciting... but it's also not anyplace I'd steer you away from.

Welcome to St. Louis!

I don't know what to say. Glad you found a job, but sad it's so far away...

If you have a sliver of time before you go, please know that we'd love to see you.

Wow, this makes me heart ache!
