Narnia Lives !
It started with a phone call from Antarctica.
Ex member Trout is working there and called up a the beginning of the New Years party. The phone was passed around in the excitement to hear our old friend and the question “What time zone Antarctica is in anyway?”
Funologist grade parties. Some people find this an odd behavior, but if we are ever going to progress this pseudo-science we need experiments and results to consider. You can’t get a B level grade for a party, unless you do something novel. You can’t get an A, without changing someone’s life. This party changed a bunch of people’s lives. From the casual guest who did not know what community life really looked like until they arrived. TO the kissing workshop facilitator who found themselves surround by same-sex kissing of hetero identified participants. To the Narnia tree house village which sprung from nowhere and appeared in the Tupelo LR complete with Wardrobe to enter the party space thru. To the cuddle pile which turned into a minor orgy.
The low hanging fruit for funologists is creating events where people can fall in love. There is no more accessible way to change someone’s life than to create a new romance. And early reports are this party was successful in that.
The event was the smallest New Years eve party we have had in my dozen years here, because we were not even sure we were going to have it because of the scabies treatment (now blessedly past, with no new cases in over two weeks).
There are calls for the Narnia tree house villages to be saved (Marione hailed “Save Narnia!” in ZK to me) – and lo it appears to be happening. The giant wardrobe is gone, but the overhead walkways remain.
I am scouring the commune for pictures of the tree house village hardware, come back to this entry in the next few days and they should be here.
