Dragon Hills Gathering – Samhain 2011
I just realized that I never blogged about attending Dragon Hills gathering in Georgia last October for Samhain!
I had a blast, although it was very very cold! An arctic blast came “down to Georgia” and it was actually below freezing a couple nights. I was very thankful that the property owner provided me a warm toasty cabin to sleep in!
I was wondering, while I was driving up to Georgia from Florida, if I had been to this specific property before, as I had attended a gathering held in the area way way back in the mid to late 90s.
Sure enough, when I entered the property in my car and came over the hill, I flashed back to the 90s, and the gathering that was held there! My how things have changed there, and for myself as well!
Back then there were no “facilities” really. It was all port-a-potties and ice cold showers. No buildings at all. Now there is a big barn that is the main meeting area, with a stage where the concert was held, as well as the Samhain party and tricks and treats for the kiddies. There is a work trailer parked next to the barn and actually connected into the barn, and it houses toilets and warm showers! There are also a handful of nice comfortable cabins for people to rent, complete with beds, air conditioning and space heaters.
I remember back in the 90s, I had brought a single small square rectangle table to display my cassette tapes on of my 1st album! They were little purple tapes, and if you own one, it’s now a collector’s item! Of course, www.PaganMusic.com grew into the world’s largest Pagan Music store at one point, and we were carrying literally thousands of products and titles. Since decided to get out of retail and back into producing my original music, we have been liquidating the remaining stock. Some of the remaining stock is rare, hard to find items. I currently have most of them for sale on Amazon. Go to www.PaganMusic.com and there is a link provided to go directly to our items on Amazon. There are also a handful of CDs that do not have UCP codes. Because of this, Amazon won’t let me list them. Therefore I have listed them in small lots to purchase at WHOLESALE PRICING at: http://alexianmusic.com/index.php/music/pagan-cds-for-sale-wholesale/ All of our stock is brand new, although some of the CDs may have been open to make sound clips one time.
So back to Dragon Hills….
It was a lovely time, with lovely people. The food was great, thanks to Momma Rita, and the fires were warm, thanks to Papa John and his helpers. I especially enjoyed the delicious Hot Chocolate round the pic nic tables or the bonfires.
A special thanks to Holly for making it possible for me to attend the gathering and perform for a wonderful group of people! Holly and her partner were responsible for bringing me to the gathering. I appreciate you more than you know!
I look forward to visiting the Dragon Hills again!
