Stories of the Week
Creating New Worlds with Butterflies - Is Alan Moore a genius or madman 
rushing about?  History will tell.How many people do you know creating new worlds 
with butterflies?  If Alan has his way our new planetarian homes will be 
peaceful and harmonious. "It's all in letting your butterfly free" he says.  A 
scientist turned peace maker, Alans mind is attached to rainbow hued galaxies with 
all doors open.  Alan asked to share his 'butterfly world' vision with all the 
readers of "On the Road with Judy!" And what can ya say to a man with a 
butterfly on his nose and eight feet wings except "!!!YES!!!"

Book of the Week
The Butterfly Boy.- Laurance Yep based this book on the writings of Chuang 
Tzu, sometimes called the Butterfly Philosopher, who lived in China during the 
troubled times at the end of the fourth century B. C. This is a tale of a boy 
who sometimes thinks he is a butterfly. His strange behavior puts him in 
uncomfortable situations and he is often ridiculed by others. When his homeland is 
invaded by a cruel lord, his people live in fear. Odd as he is, the boy does 
not fear the lord--only laughs at him. The lord's first thought is to punish the 
boy, but then he comes to believe the boy is either a prophet or madman and 
he lets him go. Winter arrives early and the lord and his soldiers perish in 
the snow. Following this, the villagers come to honor and respect the boy.  
(Farrar Straus Giroux, 1993)

feature drummers from a wide variety of regions, prominence and influence -

lost their children due to acts of violence and mothers of missing and abused 
children. Then, at exactly 1 pm Pacific Time, we invite all drummers across
