per amica silentia lunae

or, across the ferny brae with the evil voodoo celt

So... slowly recovering from FSG, but my head still feels like it's been stuffed with malevolent cotton. Seventh consecutive year on staff(!), and about the twentieth time I've attended...

Apparently I missed a zombie invasion, but since I spent part of Friday night hanging out with the Ghede, it all balances out.

I had a wonderful time. Some high points:

- Geo's memorial
- the main ritual
- meeting new friends, reconnecting with old friends, getting to know cool people better
- being present for people getting ink
- the sumbol
- slacking on The Wrong Side of the Tracks
- a powerful and thought-provoking Brigid pathworking
- the Vodou fet
- the Telesma and Kiva concerts
- a wonderfully helpful reading from latzoni
- an important late-night conversation with R. and Firesong
- having just the right staff job, and working with great people to create a great gathering

Only a few downsides:
- I really need to work on my presenter skills
- I didn't sleep enough
- I was actually too cold on Thursday

"Damballah doesn't want to see your pasty white ass."
"Don't stick your dick in crazy."
"Sooner or later, everyone is in Kiva."
"Boris, I think everyone here is Moose and Squirrel!"
"The last thing I want to see at that hour is smegma."

More coherent thoughts possible later. I'm just ugly-tired right now...

"The last thing I want to see at that hour is smegma."

This is right up there with a quote from another friend's journal about their weekend "Five words: naked picnic table shibari bukkake"

Apparantly there was a lot of late night smegma this weekend.

naked picnic table shibari bukkake

Sounds like an incantation...

actually, it was someone talking about teaching a morning workshop, and being at eye-level with someone's junk.

You felt your presentation did not go well?

Yes and no. I kind of bombed on the info part... bad delivery- I sounded awful even to me.

The guided meditation went very well, though.

I just need to rehearse more.

It pleased me a lot that you had the sumbol as one of your highlights. They've kind of become a "mainstay" of FSG, and sometimes they kinda get blown by, particularly the Saturday night ones, because everyone's exhausted.

I was glad it was good for you.

Sorry I wasn't there for most of the Sat night one, but I was walking dead by that point...
