Why are we so full of restraint? Why do we not give in all directions? Is it fear of losing ourselves? Until we do lose ourselves there is no hope of finding ourselves.

Here are some tantalizing clues about Wednesday’s Big Announcement!

Uncanny, isn’t it?

That’s been some chatter* about our imminent BIG ANNOUNCEMENT, slated for Wed. Nov. 28th, and while being tight-lipped certainly adds an air of secrecy, mystique, and intrigue to the proceedings, we also don’t like being called “Nixonian.”**

So we’ll do a little Q&A to shed some light – not enough light, mind you; just a tantalizing sliver of creamy, buttery light – about what you can expect in a few days.

Q:  So what’s the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT?

A:  Great question!  The BIG ANNOUNCEMENT is t— oh, wait…HEY!  No, wait till Wednesday to find out.   Nice try….

Q:  Is it a big rock concert?

A:  No.  Can’t have big rock concerts in the winter because of wind and rain.  Too much liability.  (Looks over and sees the bespectacled HML lawyer nodding solemnly.)

Q:  So no, like, secret Van Morrison or Annie Lennox show or whatever?

A:  Dude, c’mon…

Q:  Does the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT have to do with the creative arts?

A:  Yes!

Q:  Does it involve, say, Oscar-winner(s)?

A:  Yes!

Q:  Does it involve Magnus singing the “South Coast Ballad?”

A:  Yes.  In fact, when bequeathing the HML to the Big Sur Land Trust (the “Articles of Bequeathment), Emil White, in Section X, Article III (“Demands”), demanded that, and I quote, “The ‘South Coast Ballad’ must be sung as often as possible…particularly when Mike or Keely do something wrong.”

Q:  Does the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT involve the the new Twilight movie, good food, the Tea Party, Oprah Winfrey’s flailing cable network, ponchos, or quantum physics?

A:  No, yes, no, no, maybe, and maybe!

….

And that’s all you get.  Stay tuned for the big announcement on Wednesday!
