Summertime in the City. Jai Baba!

The Athens Baba community has been rather quiet lately. We still meet weekly at Hendershots for coffee and conversation. Recently friends from Myrtle Beach -- Maraiya and Keren -- joined us at our "Baba Breakfast" and we were regaled with funny and touching stories of Keren's time in the Israeli Army and how she came to find Meher Baba.  We also heard from Bobbie who is fairly new to Athens but not new to Baba.  Bobbie lived in Myrtle Beach years back and spent time with Elizabeth and Kitty.

Many of us from Athens will be traveling to Myrtle Beach for Silence Day.  It will be hot, crowded and wonderful. Definitely wonderful.

In other news, rumor has it that our very own SJ will be emceeing next year's SE Gathering. More to come on that.

In the meantime, here are some random photos featuring faces and places we know and love:

Happy, Happy Easter from ABG!

It's a wrap!

The Athens Baba Family has been very busy this spring.  Diana and Bill LePage spent a few weeks in Athens before heading to the Southeast Gathering. Bill gave several talks while in Athens and also headlined the Gathering. Charlie once again worked his magic to provide for a beautiful stage featuring artwork by Thom Fortson. Brian organized the musical acts and also shared his music with us every morning at Arti and during the musical showcase. Caleb and SJ (a/k/a Famous and Honey) left us wanting more after their fine performances.  It was a good Gathering filled with family, friends and Baba's love and grace.  For those who did not have a chance to spend time with Bill and Diana, they will be at the Center in Myrtle Beach all summer.
