Merry Meet Rabid Pagans!
Today is my birthday and I’ve had a great one! There are literally HUNDREDS of posts on my Facebook from people wishing me a joyous day, and you all have made it one!
I am preparing to leave for the Phoenix Phyre gathering in Central Florida (Lakeland, FL) on Wednesday, and I will be there through Sunday. During the festival, I will be reading cards for people and also teaching one of my favorite workshops, “The Magickal Voice”. The workshop is scheduled for Thursday afternoon at the gathering.
Friday evening, April 8th, I will be debuting my new dance music along with some old favorites at my concert at Phoenix Phyre. The entertainment starts at 8:30pm with me hosting an open mic, followed by my concert.
If you can’t make it to the gathering for the full time, there are weekend passes available, as well as an evening pass from 6pm to 11pm for only $15. This includes my concert! So come out and see me!

If you do plan on coming out to the concert, or if you just want to have some fun… check out the new line dance that my dear friend and covenmate, Ayanna, created for my birthday! It’s for my dance remake, “Cool to Be a Witch 2.0”!
I have posted the video right here on my website under Videos, or you can always go directly to my YouTube site at: http://www.youtube.com/lordalexian
Spring is here, and I’m ready to travel! I’ll be calling you all to set up concerts (and house concerts as well) all around Florida during the months of late April, May & June!
Then I’m already starting to plan a tour all the way up from Florida through the MID-WEST and back during July! So if you live in Northern FL, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Arkansas, or Missouri, etc please contact me! This is your chance to get me to come perform live for you and your friends!
I am also contemplating a tour UP the East Coast all the way North in October! What Witchy pleasures await me up there?
Don’t be shy! Contact me… I don’t bite…. too hard. (Unless you want me to!)
I was about 6 to 7 years old, and it was around 1972. We had just returned from a trip to the nearest “big city”, Springfield, MO. I was raised on a farm about 1.5 hours outside of the the “city”, and it became the regular routine to go into town once every month or two to go shopping at the nearest mall.
Part of the trip’s ritual was to stop at the department store “Ventures” just before leaving town. I would always get a helium balloon for behaving for the duration, and if especially good, ice cream!
After returning home to the farm on this particular day my only sibling (my sister who is 7 years older) and I went outside to play with my helium balloon while my mother was starting dinner early. My father had already left to go get some work done elsewhere before dark.
I had tied a small stick on the end of the balloon’s string that was just heavy enough to let the balloon float up a good 20 feet before gravity would take hold and bring it back to earth.
I had thrown it up in the air several times, when a sudden breeze came up and whipped the balloon around the corner of the house and to the side.
