GOG's Beltane MayFaire
Our MayFaire was funny, and surprisingly sexy for GOG. 27 people
enjoyed themselves making floral headwreaths for pretty Parvati, enjoying
Ganesha's bake-off and boasting, the 3-legged shakti race, Kartikeya's
henna painting, Shiva's big maypole, and lots of ritual. Karl led the
rite, which was in honor of the Divine Family: Parvati, Shiva, Ganesha,
Kartikeya, and Nandi, and most of the folks attending took parts. Deb
organized the rite, and invoked Parvati. The omens: join up and enjoy
yourselves (from the Kama Sutra deck). For the first time in years, the
ritual was held indoors, but the rain held off until the outdoor festivities
had finished. Much thanks to Bob, Patty, and Tricia for hosting, and thanks
go to our kitchen witches, Bob and Chuck, for the bar-b-que. 9 attended
the planning meeting and helped plan the ritual and the day.
