1. A QUICK HELLO FROM THE ROAD

Dear Readers,
I'm writing this on an Air Canada flight to Edmonton , Canada . Outside my window I see deep violet mountains laced with the earliest snow – as far as the eyes can see. I'm going to teach a bunch of fun classes. It's so gorgeous out there, it's a shame that this trip I won't have the time to go hiking and I wont' be back during the snow boarding season. Oh well… I guess I'll just have to settle for a really great steak, as this is cattle country, and a good kinky Halloween gathering!

I've been meaning to get this newsletter out sooner but my last few weeks have been have been more then busy, adventuring in Europe. I'll share more of that later in Part 2.

There's a lot of topics I want to cover this months, so I thought it better to divide my newsletter into couple of sections. That way it should be a bit easier for your eyes and bandwidth. In this section I'll cover the bare bones on upcoming classes and event. Part 2 will be more of the gossip, updates, sexcapades and misadventures of my last few weeks.

Thanks for reading my newsletter!

Midori

4. SPEAKING OF AIDS LIFECYCLE – Would you buy me a cup of coffee?
This is my continuing effort to relieve those suffering from HIV/AIDS and to help end the pandemic. This disease is not just killing my friends and family members… but it's affected global peace and prosperity. All I ask from you, my friends, students and readers, is the equivalent of a cup of fancy coffee. For all the coffees I could have with my friends, lives can be saved. Thank you…

Can't attend my Bang 4 the Buck party but want to support the effort? Here's how you can help me on the AIDS Lifecycle ride… Stop by my official ALC fund raising site. I have a pretty cool photo of me up there too.
www.aidslifecycle.org/8564
Or send to Kelly's official fundraiser page at www.aidslifecycle.org/8563
And then there's our team page: www.aidslifecycle.org/109

Let me know what you think of the photos!

(Part 2 will go out in a day or two...)
