Lots of Isis Storm: A Forecast and Update

15 Jan

Greetings friends and family of Isis Storm,
This post is about great events being organized officially by Isis Storm and by many of the fine women of the Isis Storm Collective.  We’ve also thrown in a couple other community events; consider them as belonging to honorary Isis Storm members.  Much of this information – and this bulletin here – is or will be available for your reference on www.IsisStorm.com (and VenusSings.com). We hope you can make it to some or all of these great events because these people are working hard and creating beautifully.

Hope & Triumph, Sunshine & Laughter,

Kal and Reza
