Keep Boulder weird is the slogan at the Boulder Bookstore. Well, we just lost one of our weirdest, and I say that with sadness and respect.
Many of you will know or remember Dennis Sprague, he of the fuzzy shiny shirts and blouses, moped and tattoo on his bald spot, a perpetual presence downtown.
Memorial tomorrow, and Friday.
Yours in remembering that life is short and precious… ~ ed.
Boulder says goodbye to a long-time brother.
All of you from the old school surely have heard by now that our friend and fun lover Dennis Sprague decided last week to move on to the next life, or nirvana as the case may be. While it’s tempting to get sad and misty eyed, I trust that Dennis with his super friendly, about town, artsy lifestyle would implore us to cherish the good times and celebrate his interesting life. He was a spiritual mentor to me since 20 years ago upon first arriving to Boulder, introducing me to such authors and ways of thinking as Joel Goldsmith. In this vein of celebration and well wishes, there will be a gathering on the Boulder courthouse lawn in Dennis’s honor this Wednesday, March 9th at 6pm. For those who have the time and inclination, a party at Conor O’Neills will follow at 7pm.
A Life and Times Celebration in honor of the late and legendary Dennis Sprague, this coming Friday night, March 11, 2011.
Boulder Icon and the sweetest of souls, Dennis Sprague passed away recently and I believe it would have pleased him for us to gather together, share stories of his adventures, and party in a manner most befitting a man who wrote the book on it! Whatever shape or form this evening may become… joyous, tearful, or downright debauchery in honor of a good friend lost, all is welcome. Please feel free to bring any pictures, videos, candles or shrine worthy tokens.
Also, if anyone has any ideas for a special toast or something they would like to do on Dennis’ behalf, please speak up. I was thinking maybe a special “Re-Birthday Cake” or something…
I will be providing an assortment of “refreshments” but please BYOB if you can.
To enter my home (door is next to Bliss at 1637 Pearl) press 305 into the keypad followed by the bell icon.
I hope to see you Friday and please spread the word, all are welcome.
Please be advised that there is also a Memorial Service on Wednesday, March 9th. Begins on the Courthouse lawn..6ish and continues at Conor O’Neil’s after 7. Please come and join in a candlelight meditation and love celebration.
