Enter the golden glow of twilight in Charles Dickens’ London Town – a city 
filled with lively and colorful characters from both literature and history. 
Enticing aromas of roasted chestnuts and hearty foods fill the air. Cries of 
street vendors hawking their wares ring out above the bustling crowd. One hundred 
lamp lit shops are filled to overflowing with Christmas presents. 


The Great Dickens Christmas Fair offers a sampling of the finest in musical, 
dance, magic and novelty acts, an outrageous Christmas pantomime, characters 
from Alice in Wonderland, Punch & Judy puppet shows and of course, Mad Sal's 
Dockside Alehouse where patrons can join in singing rowdy favorites or watch the 
bold high-kicking gals take to the stage in the wicked can-can! The immensely 
popular, roguish production of the “Saucy French Postcard Tableaux Review” 
returns for a second year in a row. It truly is a Christmas wonderland!

protestors at the Port of Oakland, "The State of Surveillance: Government Monitoring 
of Political Activity in Northern and Central California" tells the compelling 
stories of individuals and groups that were targets of government

A Comedy of Biblical Proportions performance art by Sherry Glaser

$25 at Twist in Mendocino and Tangents in Fort Bragg Work Trade is available. 
For more information call  707-937-3871  www.sherryglaser.net 
Refreshments will be served. 

This performance is in Celebration of the Season and the purchase of the 
Salmon Creek Watershed by The Conservation Fund www.conservationfund.org which 
will afford community involvement and stewardship. The evening will include 
forest management strategies and a portion of the proceeds will go to the Albion 
Community to continue to protect the local watershed and ecosystems. Oh My 
Goddess! is  is for mature audiences and does contain brief, tasteful nudity. 
(Yum!) 

Sherry Glaser builds on her reputation for superb writing and 
characterization in Oh My Goddess! This acclaimed satire is a potent antidote to the critical 
global condition. Glaser unravels two multi-faceted, contrary characters 
using simple stories that offer a vision of hope for self and world 
transformation. Human behavior can change according to Glaser in this timely and topical 
comedy. Intelligent and sophisticated, 

"Oh My Goddess" tells the story of a dreamer; Miguel De Cervantes, whose 
search to find his purpose in life, leads him to become the channel for the return 
of the Great Jewish Mother of us all. Glaser takes on the entire 
Judeo-Christian belief system based on Patriarchy and reminds us that the return of the 
mother is at hand. It is a hilarious/touching one woman play that contains 
brief, tasteful nudity and adult, political & feminist themes. Ms. Glaser recently 
performed this updated version of "Oh My Goddess!" San Francisco to sold out 
audiences. Sherry is although author and star of Off-Broadway's "Family Secrets"

Writer and performer, Sherry Glaser, delivers an exceptionally funny, tour de 
force performance for which she receives standing ovations. "Exceptional 
comedic flair, and a genius for characterization that you're not likely to see 
surpassed this side of Lily Tomlin." - James Brady, The Coast Weekly

Author & activist Paul Hawken wrote: "Sherry dives into everyday life and 
lifts you into the realm of joyous, belly-splitting laughter that sends audiences 
into fits of giggles. The progressive movement has found their comedic muse 
and she rocks!"

When Deepak Chopra's Alliance for New Humanity held the Power of Oneness 
Conference in Puerto Rico in December, 2005, Chopra used the imaginal cell concept 
from her book in their promo.  It was also used by Barbara Marx Hubbard as 
the theme to "Conscious Evolution" and by Elisabeth Sahtouris in her work. The 
Institute of Noetic Science conducted a two year research study from 1998-2000 
on patterns of transformation based on people's real-life personal stories. 
Their report was entitled "What the Butterfly Knows" and used Norie's model in a 
sidebar called "Wired for Wings."  You can view that article at 
www.noetic.org/publications/review/issue52/r52_Thompson.html

Norie is looking forward to meeting you and learning more about you – and 
about "who we all are together." She believes that we're reaching a “Good News" 
level of clumping and clustering.  Her hope is that by coming together more 
closely and in some new and wonderful ways, "we'll be able to take a great leap 
together into a whole new acceleration of transformational activity and 
evolution.” We both invite you to join us in making this happen.

We especially encourage people who are facilitators of networks of
