First thing Thursday morning I’m headed down to Naples, FL for my dad’s memorial service; the city is on the Gulf coast, but hundreds of miles away from the oil-spill. I’ve been trying to think of something suitable that’s disaster-related to do while I’m down there – beyond trying to drive less (ironically) and donating to groups working on the cleanup, that is – and the only thing I’ve thought of so far is to bring prayers and healing energy.
So, that’s what I’m going to do – my current plan is to be on the shore between 10-11 PM (Eastern) on Friday night, offering said prayers and energy to the gods and spirits of the Gulf area and specifically petitioning Poseidon to give Them His aid. I invite anyone who wants to participate in making this a group healing to jump in during this hour and send your own energy; or, if you have a prayer you would like me to carry, you can post it here or use the Contact form above.
If this strikes you as a worthwhile endeavor, please feel free to spread the word!

The other day Chas Clifton linked to an old strip of one of my favorite webcomics, PartiallyClips. Today’s strip is also link-worthy, so here it is! I encourage you to go and read the archives (and buy the book!) – they’re *well* worth the time.
Cross-posting this (from Sannion’s LJ) on behalf of the editors:
