Pagan Pride Day

It was today. Steve and I have been attending a local kindred, which could stand to grow a little. A few months ago I suggested an info table at PPD. The ladies who founded the kindred, Birgit and Liz, weren't too sure, but since a table was only $10 to reserve, everyone thought that was a small enough bet to take.

Steve and I did put some money into it. $50 bought us a 9x9 (hee hee) canopy that we know we'll be using in other situations, and we bought some folding camp chairs we'd been meaning to get anyway. Others brought their own chairs and with two folding tables, the chairs, the canopy and a Celtic wall hanging as a tablecloth, it looked like we knew what we were doing.

PPD is mostly Wiccan with presence from the ADF (Druids, with some heathens). The Maitreya folks like to show up and there were some Thelema types. There was a good bit of excitement of having Asatru there. Liz, Birgit and I did some rune readings and we explained what Asatru was, where people could meet us further and so on.

Steve was a sport. He didn't expect to have a great time but kept useful, running errands to make photocopies of leaflets, get sandwiches, and so on. He had some fun when there were three other guys, two of whom were rednecks and all of whom like shooting. We may have a new member in a really pleasant Navy gal who was in a kindred in Arizona but obviously they're too far away now.

I'm proud of myself for organizing all this and am currently asking people for how we can make it better next year.

I don't get the 9x9 joke.

9 is the important number in Norse myth. Odin hung upon Yggdrasil for nine days. Heimdall had nine mothers. Thor staggers back nine steps after killing Jormungandr. And so on.

Did you put this info out on Facebook? I think it's something my mom really would have liked to go to. Let us know about it next year!

San Diego Pagan Pride has its own FB page. Your mom can follow it and decide what to do for it.

OK, thanks! For some reason I thought you helped run the festival so assumed you would promote it. I'll look it up on FB and let my Mom know.

OK, that must be why I got it mixed up. Sorry.

They're there, all right. If you can get to Glastonbury, I know that's a veritable clearing house of info.

*nods* good plan! Glastonbury is only about 50 miles away and I have been planning to visit for a while, some friends recently moved there and I need to stock up on supplies :) Just need a free weekend :)
