|04:51 pm - Oh, Ginger, wherefore art thou, Ginger?|
Today, in the mail, I received an invitation to Trilium. This festival had crossed my mind on an occasion or two, and I'd thought about going, but couldn't really justify the drive time, the cost, the days off, and all that stuff.
But then I get this invite.
Normally, this isn't a big deal. It's just a piece of paper (admittedly, cleverly folded), with a snowman postage stamp and my name and the Grove's address written in distinctly female script.
I love female script, by the way.
Anyway, Normally this isn't something that would really sway my decision-making.
But about a week ago I got an email from Explore telling me that he's swinging through Columbus with rhiannon76 on their way out to Trillium and they'd like to stop for lunch or dinner or something. This tells me that I'm probably going to be missing a fun time with people I will probably like just as much in person. [strike one]
Then today comes this regular, every-day invitation, and right smack on the front of it is this sexy line:
"Cedar Lights Grove will lead Saturday Night's Main Ritual"
Now, I admit, that doesn't sound sexy. You know, in print, to most people, it'd look really, really flat.
But to me, this means "Hey, my Harem will be there!" [strike two]
And then I open it up and look inside. There are a bunch of workshops that look, at best, pretty "okay". But one catches my eye:
Healing with Ginger
Taught by Sati,
Cedar Light Grove
And all I can think of is Ginger from Gilligan's Island.
Upon further reflection, I have realized that this is probably not the type of Ginger she means, but, I mean, Christ! When my mind starts to move in that direction, there's just nothing that can stop it! [strike three, I'm out]
So, well, hell. Now what?
I suppose I need to start looking to see if I can get that Friday off, huh?
Why didn't you girls *tell* me you'd be there!?!
(satikat, you do realize that you're going to have to work Ginger from Gilligan's Island into the workshop if I come now, don't you?)

Well, we'd have to think of a good reason as to why we need
you your workshops. We're pretty solid in the ones mentioned on your site. So you should be more unique and interesting.
And I understand completely. Stones are so much more interesting. We, however, have a pavilion, so nyah.
We're pretty solid in the ones mentioned on your site
So, what would you like to see?
I got skillz, you know. I'm working on the whole "unique and interesting" part, but I have a long way to go there.
I'd love to see a trickster and chaos deities workshop, or one on non-standard rituals and magic. That's all I can think of at the moment. One of our members has been talking about presenting the first at a Lore meeting, and we had one about Vodun (which wasn't exactly successful). Of course, there's nothing saying that I can't put together small workshops, but I don't exactly have the brain power until June.
I might be able to do something like that. I like new challenges. It's always good to be kept on my toes.
Let me know if you guys come up with something. I'd love to fly out for a while and hang out with you guys.
Oh, I also tell stories. :) You know, in case you couldn't tell.
