Again, we’re back from visiting friends out of town, for a day at home to catch up on laundry and e-mail. We’ve just been to Erie PA for their Pagan Pride Day, a mind-blowing event. The spirit there and the sense of community were a joy to experience.
The trip was arranged by Reverend Badger and Cindy, to whom many thanks–more than we can express. We stayed in the home of Diana and Rich, to whom even more thanks. Their various cats and two dogs were kind enough not to complain even when we wore their fur thin.
While we were in the neighborhood, on the Friday we took the opportunity to lunch with Frank and Darlene Barney at Brushwood. Darlene was her usual feisty self, much to our pleasure; and Frank seemed stronger than when we had seen him in summer. Maybe it was the lower population density. Sending energy to Frank would be much appreciated–certainly by us Frosts. We confirmed our invitation to Sirius Rising next July; so you troops be there; you hear? See
At the Pagan Pride Day we gave three presentations. The one that seemed most popular was “99 Ways Good Witches Go Bad”, based on our book “Good Witches Fly Smoothly”. We offered some of our books for sale; interestingly, no one bought a “Good Witch’s Bible” (the update of “The Witch’s Bible”); so maybe nobody is interested any longer in what it really says … as contrasted to what the web says it says, or maybe wants it to have said.
On the Sunday we had the great pleasure of giving a presentation at the Erie Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship after their annual Blending Water service. That service occurs at this time of year, when people returning from vacation and travel bring with them a little water from memorable places. Glastonbury was well represented, as were Northern Ireland and many other sites.
Our plans for the immediate future? They include the festival in Springfield MO, now set for October 30 at the
