Recent planning

So, Wednesday night, I showed up at my friend L’s house, and in the hour before we left for our evening meeting, we came up with a plan.

Our basic outline:

We currently have 6 rituals planned out through Beltane:

  • February 16th : A full moon
  • March 8th: A tradition specific one
  • March 20th: Combined spring equinox (the 19th) and full moon (the 21st)

This weekend was blissfully free for a change: some brief social stuff and errands, but all of Monday free due to Martin Luther King Jr. Day. I feel part-way human again. Plus, I’ve only got five more days at the temporary job to go, which helps with momentum.

Conversation, part 1
