This weekend in Seattle...

The Seattle Green Festival (HUGE! Tons of hippies, the Mayor, and so forth!)

Seeds of Compassion (HUGEST! The Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, Dave Matthews (blech), Rob Bell, Steven Charleston, sold out football stadiums...)

Healing our Planet Earth (A little less HUGE than Seeds of Compassion, but HUGER for Episcopalians than the Green Festival! Sally McFague, Katherine Jefferts Schori, ME (well, I'll be helping with sign-ins anyway))

Everything must Change (Less HUGE than the rest, but potentially HUGER for emerging church types. Brian McClaren and friends).

Why in the world is it all happening in the same city on the same weekend?! I can be at one of them anyway...

hmmm...wonder what the carbon footprint of all these shindigs amounts to...and was it calculated and offset properly?

yes, well, that is the irony, isn't it? It was probably huge, since I'm sure they've all flown in on big jets, some of them private. We won't have plastic water bottles though, damn it.

Well, in order to balance the center of gravity of Seattle celebrity, I'm going to San Jose for the weekend :)
