Hello my Pipeline family… we have been invited to a performance by James Luna November 10 and wanted to make sure we all GO… James is an amazing performance artist and is from the La Joya reservation.. Check out he’s website… he’s a wild and crazy…
I hope you are all doing well and have settled back to your routines. It is hard to believe that it has only been less than a week since we last saw each other and I truly miss you all. Just to keep our momentum going we are now in the planning stages of our first get together set for Saturday, September 17. We will be leaving from Pitzer at 9:00 AM and traveling to the City of Commerce to participate in their College Fair. We will be returning to Pitzer no later than 5:00 PM as I would like to take a side trip to the Griffith Observatory (http://www.griffithobs.org/). Please pass this along to the others in our pipeline family and please confirm you will be able to go. Stay tune for more information.
Peace and many blessings to my pipeline family,
