A PG Gathering in London Feb 2015

Post by Suzanne » Sat Jul 19, 2014 7:59 pm

Hi,

I have been planning a trip to London, Feb 2015. I would love to meet PG people on Friday, Feb 20 for a pub night, perhaps arrange a Saturday 21 museum outing and then spend some sharing our poems on Saturday evening? Wouldn't it be fun??

Pauline came to Helsinki to visit me in June and we had such fun! I know others have met recently as well....
Let's make an event of it? Shall we? Those outside of London have seven months to figure out the logistics. Come!


My tickets are already purchased and I would love to meet you all.
You are invited, welcome.

Warmly,
Suzanne

Yippee! I am so happy Pauline and Seth! Can't wait to meet you, Seth!

Wonderful for you both to travel so far.
It is still a long time from now but we are all old enough to understand how quickly that time will pass.

My hotel is close to the center and I am certain we can find a cozy place to meet.
The more the merrier, the more the merrier.

Someone is sure to provide some poetic entertainment... but who? who? who? lol.

You?
Oooh, I see you all thinking about it.

Sounds good to me! But can I cope with seeing you all in the flesh?

And more to the point, where will I be if I destroy my mystique?

Then there's the fact that only geniuses, children and superheroes can see you...

...that could be awkward :roll:

Fortunately, that covers most of the membership of PG!

Great Ros! Oh, it will be lovely meeting you after all this time (and after all the little trouble I have caused, ha! lol)

It IS very scary to meet people you've met online. I agree.
I've decided to be brave and hope you and others will too.

Is not life too short to NOT meet me, right? It is what life is all about, people.
Come for a drink and a laugh? Helsinki is not down the block. Let's make it a good enough reason to gather everyone (who want to) together. I'm pretty sure I will be so happy I will sing, even if I try not to... I bet I do.


Ros, your mystique is not in any jeopardy, seeing you smile will certainly only enhance our respect for what you do around here.
You've got such moxy! We will always say, how does she do it?

Bring Ian. lol.
Ian, bring Ros.

Warmly,
Suzanne

Brain is in Japan isn't he?

Sounds interesting... could be possible...

But I haven't been around PG much recently - you'll all wonder who I am!

We know you!

Come!

It would be so exciting. You bring your mandolin and I will bring
one of those little wooden eggs filled with sand!



It will be fun. I can shake a good rhythm.

But you only have to play two songs or it will feel like gig and you won't enjoy it the same.

Try to make it Marc. It would be so lovely.

Yippee.

Not my cup of tea at all, but some of you probably knew that already. Hope you all have a good time though.

I am glad you said so though.

Maybe... yeah this might be doable.

I was just in London for a few days actually. It crossed my mind to look some PG-ers up but I figured none of you actually live in London. Currently visiting family in North Wales but back to the USA tomorrow.

It would be great to met you Ben!
Friday would be for those nearby but Saturday will be the real event, i think.

It would be lovely after all these years to meet up.

I'd like to come out to play too. London is just down the road from me and it would be a pleasure to meet you all.

!! This is getting more exciting every day! Oskar, it would be great if you came. I bet you'd be happy to perform something for us from your CD? Ooooh! Yes! It would be so great to see you in action. I am so very happy!

Already, there are a handful of people willing to perform! It is sure to be entertaining.


There is no pressure to read or do anything. Just come and enjoy one another's company.
Details will be worked out in time.

Anyone can pm me with questions or suggestions.

When i arrived at PG i think soneone said i was like a Hostess in the Beginner's section....
And look at me now! I'm having a party!

Everyone is welcome.

Warmly,
Suzanne

Hi, Suzanne -

I think this is a great idea, and I sincerely wish it were my cup of tea. But, like Nash, I must say it isn't.
Any road, I wish you all a happy and enjoyable gettogether.
