Its Misfit Time!

Thursday, April 27, 6:30 at Brandt’s on Sawmill

Reading, writing, alchemy

Jumping through hoops

Doing loopdee dewps

Yet such a mellow group

Missing Chuck Berry

But his spirit is planning to attend

MMM Annual Celebration at GH Store – October 20

October 13th, 2016

Subject: Fecund, foudroyant, fun and free for fou!

Got cerebral entertainment?

Dance card full?

Well… Thursday, October 20, 6:30, Gold Hill Store and Pub

The Mountain Misfits will be having a special 16th Anniversary celebration

Join us for a lovely evening of Mountain Misfitting

All are welcome and there are guest slots for children

Five, six minutes max (i’m not talkin Yeager)

Got something to say?

Got something to read?

Got a song?

Got milk?

Got art work?

Got some spare change mister?

A sign up sheet will be provided upon entry

Just listening is also cool and a beautiful thing

There is no sound of a tree falling in the forest

When no one hears

It only becomes a sound when the vibration

Hits the tympanic membrane/eardrum

If you have never seen Edie push through paparazzi

You may want to show a little early

An angel in blue

Garlic and bluebird

The Founder of the Miscellaneous Mountain Misfits

Writing… escaping boxes

You need never get old

Spin a spotted ball and it will

Blink at you like a lighthouse

Or even wink at you like a table top dancer

Why not take a walk on the wild side?

Your brain and your heart will thank you

There will be wine, whisky in the water

And of course Hugh’s thoughtful dishes

See you at the show

Thank you very kindly!

Notice to Poets/ and others interested – all are welcome

For those not familiar with MMM (Miscellaneous Mountain Misfits), we have a monthly get-together (usually the first Thursday but can change by request of the host) at the home of one of the group. The idea is two-fold: (1) is that we do some  writing (for 15-20 minutes and this is expected to be a quiet time in order to focus on our writing) in response to a loose stimulus provided by Virgina Schultz or John Latham, followed by a non-critical read-around of what has been written. This takes about 45 minutes, followed by short break (to get snacks and drink)  and then: (2) a read-around, involving all people who care to read [for about 6 minutes per person maximum] some of their already-written prose or poetry, or writing by someone else. If, instead of reading, someone offers a song or two, that is welcomed. There is no pressure on people to actively participate. Most attendees do, but some come simply to listen. The host provides some limited drink & snacks, and if attendees care to bring along a modest contribution to the drink or food, that is welcomed, too.Here is a general time schedule e:
6:30:             John or Virginia introduces a topic and shares one or two of his poems that stimulate our writing.
7:00:             We share our writing
Approx 7:30:          Short snack break
7:45             Begin a read-around of poetry/writings/music that any have brought to share
approx8:30            Finished sharing and can stay to converse with others

If questions or to let them know you are coming, please call them at 303-546-6638

If you are not already on the separate MMM email list and would like to be included re MMM updates, just drop your email to Virginia- Take a walk on the wild side, writing is fantastic! Listeners are sublime and welcome. Snacks wine and cheese is essential.
