Thursday, August 2nd I arrived to the loving welcome of the staff and the hosts of the gathering Azrael & Angel. It was great to see the staff at Dragon Hills once again. Mama Rita had a bad case of poison oak from mowing the lawn at her house, and didn’t feel well, so the kitchen was closed for the evening.
I drove to Wendy’s drive through (not too far away) for dinner and brought it back to eat and hang out with everyone. Several more people showed up and started unpacking and setting up.
On Friday morning Mama Rita felt better and kitchen was open and smelling great! I had breakfast and good conversation, and got to know Ernie Nichols better. He is a paranormal investigator. You can find him at the Fort Oglethorpe Battlefield Investigator’s website at www.FOFBI.Webs.com, or at www.MidnightChild.Webs.com. After talking about the fact that my Matron Goddess is the Egyptian Bast, he surprisingly gifted me with an Egyptian dagger! It is already on my altar! By lunchtime the “village hangout” at the kitchen had grown and Vendors were showing up.
The lovely Jenn Bailey taught a workshop on making your own homemade cleaning products. During the workshop, we made our own laundry detergent. Jenn is very passionate about using not only more natural products for cleaning, but also saving money at the same time. It was a very interesting workshop, and a hands-on experience.
Some of the folks went with Ernie and Jesse on a ghost walk around the property after dark and had some surprising activity and results. Voices were heard and communicated with the group.
Saturday was filled with excellent conversations on many topics, and the food from the kitchen was never better!
I visited the wonderful vendors and networked and took photos.
Micah & Hope! What a kind hearted couple! I was in love with the masks and the dolls. I couldn’t keep my eyes off them! Amazing hand-made work! The dolls were very “Goth” and so well done, you thought there were going to move and speak, while the masks ranged from Pagan, to Mardi Gras, to playful!
Kit & Kay do great things! Besides their normal Pagan T shirts, and apparel, they also have created 6 T shirt designs for autism. The shirts sell for $20, and they donate $10 (50%) from every shirt to autism research.
Before i knew it, it w time to set up for my concert. I unloaded and set up with Azrael and Angel’s help. The performance went great and although it was quite warm and sticky, the Pagans were up and dancing. (When i performed there at Samhain last year, i was freezing to death! Lol!) After the concert, I broke down the musical equipment and loaded with Ernie and Jesse’s help. Jenn was so sweet and bought a CD. Invigorated from the performance, I slept like a rock that night! Thank the Goddess for the cabins at Dragon Hills and the A/C!
Sunday I got up and had coffee and breakfast with everyone. Said my goodbyes and gave hugs and headed out back home to Florida.
I want to give a special thanks to Azrael, his Mother, and Angel for making it possible for me to come and perform! I hope to be able to make it to another one of your gatherings in the future someday soon!
Merry Meet everyone!

Scream You There!
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.
