Mercian Tickets!!

21 02 2008

Thank the Goddess, mine arrived yesterday!

The Mercian Gathering is a three day pagan camp and moot run by the Hearth of Arianrhod; luckily for me it’s within 2 hours drive and I can’t wait for it. A whole weekend under canvas, eating rubbish and doing witchy things with my witchy friends and colleagues. Stamping about in boots and drinking mead and dancing, drumming, praying and learning. Buying too much on the wonderful craft stalls. Getting Reiki done. Having my face painted and acting like an eight-year old.

It’s a wonderful chance to meet new people and to relax. And believe me, people, I need to relax. Those that know me say it’s my worst feature, my lack of calm.

Well, we must wait till September; but there’s a load of wonderful things happening before that. I would like to make Mercian 2008 the pinnacle of a really good witch-year for me. I’ve earned it!

Sounds like a blast! Once again, sucks for me that it is on the other side of the marble. 😀

The world could be a little smaller, I must admit! Well, perhaps next year? 🙂

Oooh! I suspect you will be enduring a little forced relaxation at Beltaine!

Now, will you be hot-tubbing with the Vikings and jumping the fire? I can’t wait to see this!

Ah yes, lots of Vikings, one hot tub, several squealing maidens and much guffawing and you get the idea! The rest is pretty sensible, but over indulgence in mead, or whatever is available, high spirits and a complete lack of consciousness that there were lots of grumpy old Witches trying to sleep (this was still happening at 1.30 a.m.) meant there were a few sore heads the next day!

Beltaine will be slow, gentle and fuelled with some nice wine, lots of laughter and hopefully some edible food, and no opportunity to do anything but relax – that do you?

Can’t wait, my dear. Tell me what to bring 🙂

Just yourself and some warm jimjams as the heating here is… interesting!
