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!
