We had a lovely ritual last night. I had a grand time. And other than some bobbled pitches during the carols.(I pitched them a wee low)Oh well, it sounded fine when we practiced. Poor Mary had to follow my hopping around on the song sheet and the back decided guitar playing is a fine time to spasm but other than that. It was beautiful. Everyone’s parts came together to make one seamless beautiful thing.

Dummy, here took pictures and forgot to get a picture of her own North/earth altar. Joanne has usual was the perfect being of Light and Annitra was the perfect Dark Goddess. Everyone did wonderfully and our guests threw themselves into participating. I’m just glad we didn’t set off the smoke detectors with the cauldron and the incense. That would have been a big oops and kind of wreck the mood.

And other than the fact that I have absolutely no memory of my invocation or most of what I said during the Earth activity. I feel good about it.
