Witches Night Out

Tuesday was the monthly meeting of the Witches Night Out group. Mainly members of the local Wicca community, but also many individuals from Wichita's Pagan community. Since this was the last meeting before the May Day celebration on Sunday, it was a large group. This was the first one that I have attended. It was a lot of fun. There were some many there that I already knew, I was kind of surprised, although, I guess I should not have been. The longer that I get involved in "alternative" life groups (Gay, leather, BDSM, Pagan, artist...) the more I see the same people in a lot of those groups.
When I sat down one of the lesbians I have not seen in quite a while ran over, gave me a big hug and said "A Bear! I love bears!". I asked if this was the Witches Night Out and she looked at me and said, "I' glad to see you finally coming out of that closet." I was a bit taken aback. I don't believe that I have every professed any organized religion. *sneer*

The May Day on the Park is going the 12th annual celebration of Beltane. I started going to the May Day festivals about 6-7 years ago at the invitation of one of my Mah Jongg buddies lothithil. I had such a good time, I think that I only missed one. Being me, I try to be different, unique, weird, yet pleasing. One year for the May Day potluck picnic I brought sushi. This year I am going to bring stuffed grape leaves (meatless) with some hummus and pita.
If the past years that I have been going to the May Day fest, I have declined to dance the May Pole. I think this is the year I will join the dance!

That lesbian sounds funny! I'd love to see her interacting with you. :)

Well, she is about 4'5" and goes about a mile a minute. Kind of like a butch tornado on speed. She is really great!

I'm looking forward to seeing you there! (((Irishbear)))

Same Here! Will you be at Mah Jongg Friday night? We'll discuss May day.

Yeah, but I think we better check and see if Joel is going to be there... I think he's gone off to Topeka this weekend.

If we don't turn up at BlueHorse, you'll find us 'round my apartment, watching the tube.

Organized or not, I would call you a witch. Well, warlock maybe. You carry your magic everywhere you go...

I really think that you are the magical one!

But I know you are not a witch. If you were, I would have been able to find a broom in your studio. :)

Well, the history of the witch's broomstick that I learned was about psychic flying, using a drug that was absorbed better where the skin was thinner and full of blood vessels... namely, down there... hence them running around with broomsticks between their legs. The broomstick was the delivery system for the drug...

I suppose with that logic, my magic device should be a pocket pal...

The drug is in a liquid form, the delivery device is much more festive & better than a broomstick, the insertion point is near the same spot, and it is definitely a psychic flight when you get your magical fix.... :)

We're going to Short Mountain in TN for the Beltane celebration there. I would love if you went with us next year =)

Is that the Radical Faerie Sanctuary in Liberty?
Oh! that would be so much fun! Will have to keep that in mind for next year!
