You know the way solving a hangman puzzle is harder to do with only one letter revealed than it is when you have two or three? Well, sometimes the same is true of DO52. DO52... Read More »
Serentripity Giveaway: Win an Adventure for You and Your Friends
We travel light for Serentripity.
And why not, the simplicity of this road trip is part of the reason Heather, Cheryl, and I are still doing it five years later.
We hop in the car early morning and, with no destination in mind, spend the day traveling, meeting people, laughing, taking pictures, doing random acts of kindness, and generally spreading shine.
There are no rules, other than you must stop at precisely 2:18 p.m. and, wherever you are, that is exactly where fate meant for you to be. There is a message of Shine awaiting you there and the job of you and your mates is to figure out what it is.
No supplies required. Except, of course, the official set of oracles.
The first year, our only oracle was the word “shine”. It meant that when we needed to decide where to turn, when stop, and what to do after arriving, we looked to the letters S-H-I-N and E for answers.
The next year, I think we used a set of die. Odd numbers meant turn left, even numbers meant turn right, and the total number of spots is how we determined the number of miles to drive in between.
Last year it was a set of sticks. Green sticks revealed messages such as: “Go west” and “Go wherever the closet yellow car is going”. Red sticks told us when to stop: “Stop at a body of water” or “Pass five yellow signs and then stop at the nearest gas station”. And the yellow sticks revealed what we should do when we arrived. Tasks included things such as: “Leave a positive message in sidewalk chalk” and “Attach a note to someone's windshield.”
The oracles for this year are…
I could tell you, but that would ruin the surprise for this Saturday, August 2. Instead, win this beautiful set of oracles, pictured above, for you and your friends by telling us who you would love to take on a Serentripity. Official guidelines are simple and provided here: GIVEAWAY RULES.
Then, tune into our Facebook page (House of Shine) or our Twitter account (@houseofshine), beginning at 8:00 a.m., so you can follow along with this year's adventures and see what we're using for oracles in 2014.
See you there!
