Been soo busy this summer, I've hardly had time to write anything.
In May, I went to South Beach with my sister who turned 60 this year, too, and then I visited my goddess child and my grand goddess child in CT and went to Rites of Spring, too. Kulgrinda was one of their guests this year, and it was really fun to hang out with my homies at an American pagan fest. Inija, Valdas (her brother), Zemyna and Vetra were there, and I met Indre (Inija's eldest daughter) and her husband who drove out from NY to pick them up. My friend, Jeff, came out from Boston to pick me up and we drove to Della's for a fine Memorial Day cookout.
Last weekend we had a 60's party for the Geminis (including Capt. Patt who turned 60 6/7). We rented a 5 bedroom house on Clearlake and partied like it was the 60's and had a most psychedelic time. Next weekend I'll be joining the Druids on my birthday at dawn for a sunrise summer solstice rite at Inspiration Point on Grizzly Peak in Berkeley, and then I'm off to vend at the Antioch Lapidary Club's sale/swap event from 10-4 on 6/21. They're having a BBQ lunch at noon thirty for $5. In addition to my amber, I'll be taking be taking some small emeralds and mexican onyx ashtrays and mushrooms.
June 28th, I'm attending a high tea & vintage fashion show in Brentwood from noon-3 pm. Please contact me if you're interested in joining us. Tickets are $22 and include all you can eat & drink and the show.
On July 3rd I fly to Washington, DC for a Capitol Fourth of July and then leave on 7/6 for Vilnius and this year's ECER. I'll be staying in Lithuania until 8/5 and visiting Kaunas and our village. If any of you are planning on coming, please let me know. Inija has reserved rooms at the "Guest House" one block from her home in Vilnius. I've stayed there many times and it's as nice as the hostels we stayed at in Odense, and less than half the price. Lithuania is downright cheap compared to the rest of Europe, and this is your chance to see our village and temple.
