In all my years of dreaming large, the mind outstretched like the low, gnarled limbs of the majestic Valley Oak that speckle the hunched hillside, would I ever imagine to be standing here, The Mayor of Burlytown. Such high hopes for what can come of this great union of voice and spirit! This agora will be where like-minded individuals come to rest their haunches and revel in all the diverse night sky of ideas, madness and cool breeze of inspiration. I welcome any and all seekers of the Burlytown lifestyle to join me, as we embark on the great hike out into the limits of the mind, edge of the trail, off, stunningly into wilderness.
