I hope all my WV pagan brothers and sisters are well

Pagan Pride Day Morgantown, Just weighed the donated food, 119 pounds of food to go to United Way :) Also, between raffle sales, a percentage of the sales from our booth, and the donation jar we raised $134.61 for next year. That is a good start. :)

Busy weekend what with Pagan Pride in Morgantown and the Asatru having a Thing in Hurricane.

I have to say Pagan Pride was a disappointment for me personally. I went primarily to connect with folks and it felt like that didn't happen on an effective level. I'll chalk it up to me. I find that more acceptable than thinking the community is the reason.

The Asatru gathering had a completely different feel, I felt right at home from the start. These are people easy going, friendly, and motivated to build the community and are similar to folk in the N.E. Ohio community.

@Amethyst, one of those folks is from Huntington and wants to stay in contact with me. They have a meeting about once a month and invited me to be involved. Seems there's a pagan community there after all.

Weather for tomorrow looks to be about 60% chance of AM rain. Have a Plan B ready to stay dry just in case

Just DL'd directions for tomorrow. It's further away than I thought. Looks like a tank of gas is about to give it's life for a good cause. See all tomorrow that are going. Likely I'll be the aging long hair wearing a Cleveland Pagan Pride shirt. :-)

Getting packed for the weekend. We have a cabin for the weekend, so that I don't have to make multiple trips the morning and evening of Pagan Pride Day. I'll be back Sunday with an update about how the event went. Bright blessings.

@Amethyst - I know you didn't call me a butthead, _I_ did! Mainly because I can be. It's part and parcel with being outspoken, sooner or later someone will get honked at you.....sometimes justifiably so.

To other things now that the dust is settling from the move. Such as giving that report on the Pagan Pride in the Cleveland area. As was already mentioned there were about 2500 people over the 2 days of the event, 40 some merchants, workshops/classes on various topics, and maybe a dozen entertainers. Each day started and ended with ritual. I found it unique that the priestess used Wendy Rule's "Invocation". Normally I consider canned music to stifle the group's energy by lessening participation in favor of passive listening but she was singing the song and not playing it (as I've seen some do). It worked. Also the first day a handfasting was held during the ritual. Even though my lady wasn't there it was a good time to re-new my oath to her privately.

Much of the time for me was spent meeting friends and catching up on things. They were very curious about how things were going down here since the move. I find it very disconcerting to see people I respect and with a command of knowledge I'll never have treating me like I'm important and seeing me as needed here for the community. I'm not one for "guru syndrome" as my head is already too fat without encouragement! But it's nice to know I have their support if it's needed. Also it was a needed recharge of the mental batteries.

The 2nd day I escorted a friend around who was curious about all of us. She took in a couple of workshops and generally enjoyed the time. She regretted having another commit that cut her time short as she wanted to sit and absorb the ambiance of it all.

After she left some other friends, a couple, tracked me down that I always look forward to and wince at that. That's because they put greater store in my advice and the readings they ask me for than I think they should (guru syndrome again). As such I take things VERY seriously with them if I'm given such a responsibility. It was during that time I had my only annoyance with things. Some new agey dweeb (you know the kind, thinking a spice rack and a set of D+D books is all they need) had to break in and ask my friend how long she'd been in the craft so he could proclaim all the years he's been doing things (and to bask in his own delusional awesomeness). I almost screamed at him "I have TWICE your time in and I don't know shit yet you (bleep)ing git!". Fortunately he wandered off before my self control failed. I had friends to help and that would've been counter productive for them.

Aside from that one thing it was a great time.

For those that were curious, I'm baaaack! There was a gap between the new and old place where there was no internet sat up. But that's corrected and we're completely moved in save for some incidentals. Looking forward to getting to Pagan Pride in a few more days!

Sadly, I missed the full moon last night, because of pesky neighbor's, but did light a candle and incense.

Hi Marc. She sure is isn't she! Not as much energy in her as last month's but she's still got me revved up a bit.

My cell phone camera actually does a pretty good job with the moon most of the time. Haven't taken one for awhile as I've had phone and battery issues...basically one snap and the phone dies. When it dies it often won't come back on for 3 or so days. Need to get it replaced.

WitchVox is very frustrating for me...it just has been my experience that folks have signed up for it and then disappear. Much like many social sites I s'pose...I need to give it a go again apparently. ;-p
