Druidry, fellowship, and shadows: what more could you want?

Desert Magic was a weekend I wished would never end.

Yes, that sounds familiar. People talk about festivals like that all the time. It's common and I've read it in many people's journals. But this is the first time I have ever realized less than half-way through a festival that I didn't want it to end.

You see, to me, festivals end That's what they do. It doesn't really bother me for the most part. But on Friday night, as I lay down to sleep, I realized that I really didn't want this weekend to end. I wanted to hang out for a long time with druidkirk, qorinda, romandruid, and everyone else there. I just wanted to nap in the sun and talk to ardgruntler and Ian and Skip and Jessie and Erien. I wanted to sit alone in the Stone Circle and just be there with the spirits of the place.

But festivals end. We don't want them to, but they do.

All in all, it was the second best festival ever (Walking With Fire is still first, but this year's DMF is really, really close to first).
