      It was brought to my attention lovingly in a cafe yesterday that my description of Wumaniti below is unfairly inadequate. Wumaniti is waaaaaay more sacred of an herbal medicinal shop than Just a marijuana dispensary. Not really knowing what members of our local community are in here reading I feel the need to correct and apologize for such curt and deeply abbreviated description that does not do the establishment justice.

      Wumaniti, one of the the local marijuana dispensaries, having an outdoor event- a Veggie-Q with an outdoor dj and outdoor fire dancers.

        It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.

        I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own; if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, be realistic, remember the limitations of being human.

        🙏🏼💫💘🫀🥰💃🏻✨🙏🏼

          Is this part of the piece here? If not, it’s a nice addition.

              Ha! Of course. I even posted that on Readup - what a hoot! Love her and her books.

      I foolishly imagine you and I as the gay version of dirty dancing. After all, you call me bb…and Baby is Jennifer Grey’s character. “Nobody puts bb in a corner.” The classic film quote.

      So I headed to the Plaza and it was quiet and you, obviously, weren’t there. So I planned to walk the perimeter of the square and then walk back home…

      but then I heard the outdoor sounds again and followed them to discover Wumaniti, one of the the local marijuana dispensaries, having an outdoor event- a Veggie-Q with an outdoor dj and outdoor fire dancers. And I immediately needed to join the dance floor.

      why do I always feel lonely out on the dance floor? Why couldn’t you have been there to make me feel less alone?

      the moment I started dancing the fire dancers stopped and I felt alone… and naked…out on the dance floor. I didn’t want attention I just wanted to dance… all Gay and Shit.
