Weapons, Flowers, and Month 11

Good folks, on behalf of Experience Project, I want to wax poetic about the month of November, 2006. The thing that immediately comes to mind when I ask my brain to get emotional about this month is Guns and Rose's '"November Rain."

I'm certain that you remember this song and video. Axl (love that spelling) and Stephanie Seymour experience the rise and fall of love. A beautiful song from a group not known for ballads. But my initial reaction was that this had nothing to do with what I wanted to commemorate.

You see, November was a month of *unprecedented* growth for Experience Project. A gentleman never tells, but there are various numbers with multitudes of zeros attached to them behind that growth. We want to welcome each and every new member to our community with open arms-- we really like you, and we hope it shows.

Every day, we are building a better community. You talk, we listen, we talk (and listen), and most importantly-- we produce. We don't want to disappoint you. Ever. We believe in what we're doing from the very bottom of our hearts-- connecting people with themselves and others through the world of visceral life experiences-- and we won't stop, nay we *can't* stop, until everyone and their brother that can benefit from EP is a satisfied part of our team.

The features added in November kept me behind... I still have much blogging to do to introduce a few of them. And just you wait...what's coming in December is going to rock you senseless.

So now, November Rain playing away in my head... I realize that the song IS appropriate. It actually describes one of the underlying goals of Experience Project!

Don't ya think that you need somebody
Don't ya think that you need someone
Everybody needs somebody
You're not the only one
You're not the only one

When you're at Experience Project, you're not alone. You're among friends.

Thank you, November. And to our friends in the community, welcome again. We're all a part of something really special, and everyone benefits from *your* presence. Onward, upward... together.
