The Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time #436: Tree Trimming Tea Timing

01.10.18

One or more persons during a certain period drop their usual motives for movement and action, their relations, their work and leisure
activities, and let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the encounters they find there.

It\\\'s a bike ride.

Started by user nathansnider and user theroyalacademy.

It meets every Wednesday at 8:30pm at California Donuts #21.
(3rd and New Hampshire)
We ride at 9pm.

On the ninth year of this bike ride, you might expect:
- more inconvenient passageways
- more full moon picnics
- perhaps more \\\"cover\\\" versions of other peoples rides, performed with amateurish enthusiasm
- certainly more amateurish enthusiasm
- disorientation
- reorientation
- pool halls
- bowling alleys
- dance parties
- karaoke
- imaginary histories
- scavenging for fun and sustenance
- more geocaching
- more oblique strategies
- more Oulipian constraints
- traffic median tea parties

Furthermore:
- A medium pace (maybe not for beginners; certainly not a hustle)
- Were not in a rush; we don\\\'t need to run every light.
- Maybe some distance;maybe some hills
- Victory donuts!

This week:

Tree Trimming Tea Timing



We are doing a two-month series of repeat rides (Passage Classics, let\\\'s call them), starting this week with Tree Trimming Tea Timing, a
chill ride (with warm beverages) from 2014. It\\\'s true that we\\\'ve always sort of prided ourselves on the fact that we do something different
each week, but for the next two months, we\\\'re going to do things differently by doing things we\\\'ve done before. To give you all a chance
to plan, we\\\'re including the full schedule at the end of this announcement. It\\\'s quite the lineup. We\\\'re pretty excited about it, and we hope
you are too. There\\\'s some historical content, some Oulipian constraints and even a repeat weekend ride, but enough with the previews;
on to the feature presentation:

-----------------------------------------------------------

TREE TRIMMING TEA TIMING

Consider for a moment the plight of the poor Christmas trees, raised from seedlings for the sole purpose of bringing us joy (or at least the
trappings of festivity) for a few short weeks, only to have their temporary caretakers hurl them ungraciously out to the curb, perhaps with
great relief to finally be rid of all the symbolism that they have acquired. After that: mulch.

This week, we will attempt to give those trees one last hurrah while they are still in tree-shaped form -- sort of a Passage #15 + Passage
#64 + Passage #178 + Christmas trees kind of thing. Is that a \\\"kind\\\" of thing? We\\\'re going to say yes. It is, more specifically, a kind of
thing in which we set out on bicycles in search of a discarded tree (and perhaps some furniture that has suffered a similar fate), then
decorate it while making tea and being generally festive on the curb.

We will be supplying the stoves, water, and teas; the streets will be supplying the trees. We will also be supplying a number of drinking
vessels, but it is recommended that you BRING A CUP of your own for maximal tea enjoyment. Feel free also to bring any teas or food
items you feel would be appropriate.

There will be some supplies for crafting your own ornaments should you find yourself so inspired, and if you have a particular ornament
that you feel needs another hour of glory before being retired for the year, then by all means, bring it! Garlands, lights and other
trimmings would be especially useful. All ornaments will, naturally, be taken back home when the night is done. We\\\'re not litter bugs,
after all.

There will be one or two tree/tea stops, depending on how lucky we feel.

So, to recap, here is what will be supplied:
- Teas
- Hot water
- A few drinking vessels
- Crafting supplies for making ornaments

Here is what we will be seeking out:
- Christmas trees
- Furniture

Here is what you are encouraged to bring:
- A CUP
- Any tree trimmings you like (lights, especially, would be nice)
- Any teas you\\\'d like to share
- Any tea- or holiday-related food items you\\\'d like
- Enthusiasm and perhaps a bit of patience

(short distance; long stops; pretty flat)
