The high temperature was 25 degrees, once again very glad to be doing the spring ritual indoors.
With all of the last-minute things that happened that weekend, plus my inability to visit the river, I was definitely not in the best possible headspace for leading ritual. Hopefully I didn’t screw things up too badly.
Serena told the Story of Ana this time, and did a great job! The props really did help, as did the green hair (never an option for me).
My demonstration of my relearned walking skills did not get the huge reaction I was hoping for.
The newsletter wasn’t ready in time, so now I’m updating the article I sent and also writing a second one about my experiences at the clerk’s office on the one day that same-sex marriage was legal.
Next time, the first Beltaine at the new nemeton, and the double challenge of getting myself down the hill to the circle, and setting up a Maypole on a live tree.
