Right about now (and for the last several weeks), the crew is in preparation for what is always, without fail, a smash hit. The mad scientist (Stuart) is burning the candle at both ends, often locking himself away in his activities laboratory, vigorously concocting mad fun for all ages.
Are you ready for Summer 2018? Memorial Day weekend is upon us. Let it begin.
Several years ago we were in the running for a reality show at Serendipity Park. Stuart and I were recalling it the other day and for old times sake, watched what they call the “sizzle reel.”
The “sizzle reel” is what production companies use to get interest from networks and hopefully strike a deal. In our case, it was pretty close but not to be. In retrospect, I think that’s a great thing.
I hadn’t seen the video since shortly after it was made and when I watched it, I realized how special this place is and was reminded of the important role it played in my life. More than that, I realized that a show just might have ruined what is so special about it.
Tucked away in the mountains of Georgia is this little paradise where you can be even more free than you can in the most freedomy place in the world. For many that come here, it’s their little slice of heaven. An escape. A place to come truly be themselves with others who feel the exact same way. It’s as much about camaraderie as anything else.
Many reading this know what I’m talking about. Those who don’t have yet to visit. Is that you? Stop it. Stop doing that thing where you’re not coming here.
Wait. I didn’t mean to get all pointy and tell you what to do. I think we first need to identify what’s wrong with you. (I’ve been working on conflict resolution and how to better communicate with people. Watch this.)
So clearly you’re broken. It’s okay. We’re going to get you all fixed up. You’re probably one of those, “I’m right about everything” bla bla bla types, so we need to kick that out of you. When you all realize that I’m actually the one who’s always right, your delusion will crash and you’ll jump on the path of my choosing. (Don’t resist this. I, too, finally had to succumb to me and my rightness. It’s better if you don’t fight it. Trust me.)
See? Resolution 101. Boom. Now that we’re on the same page, go check out this page to get all the information you need to go. I’m sorry I had to single you out, but all the people that go to Serendipity already know I’m right. They didn’t have to go through that exercise (again.)
Anyway, I’m sure you feel better. I know I do. Next we’ll get into the “bringing me food” portion of your training.
