Today I drove down to Fresno to see [livejournal.com profile] random_nexus and also met her pirate. We all went out for dinner, did fandom squee and geekery, then came back to the motel and played a round of Cthulhu Fluxx. They loved it and want to get one as well.

Sadly, the advertised "free wireless" has worked for maybe a grand total of 20 minutes today, so I am posting from my phone. feh

Tomorrow I'm heading north for Eugene at the asscrack of dawn so that I'll get to [livejournal.com profile] mythworker's at a reasonable hour. There will be rather more about the con and all when I get home.

It was a really busy weekend. I'm at [livejournal.com profile] lwood's place in Oakland tonight and will be visiting with [livejournal.com profile] random_nexus tomorrow before I head home. I'm so toasty you could spread me with marmalade and slap me on a plate beside some eggs & bacon.

More later, when I have brain cells again.

Had a really good day today. I've sold all of the copies of my poetry book except one, and many copies of both of my other books. Talked to a lot of the folks I've been wanting to be in contact with, and have plans to get in touch with many others. There have been hallway conversations, a discussion of CR with a gal who lived in Ireland for a year and who was wondering how all the texts and folkloric material might be practically applied, attended a Manannán ritual with one of the Druidic groups in attendance (where I met the woman who lived in Ireland), hung out with the ADF folks, and participated as a ritualist in the Ekklesía Antínoou Lupercalia ritual. Much more was said and done than I can really quite describe, but I've been having a fantastic time.

I talked to Chris Penczak briefly in the Temple of Witchcraft hospitality suite. When I have more information about actual dates I'll be in New England, we might be able to arrange for me to do a workshop on ogam for his people, pending his talking to the board of directors. He's based in New Hampshire, and it would only be a couple of hours from Springfield while I was out there. That would give me an opportunity to get a little gas money for the rest of the trip, and maybe sell some books. No promises, but I suspect there's a good chance I can pull that together.

Tomorrow's a busy day. I have the Immanion authors panel at 1:30 in the Silicon Valley room, 5pm in the ADF suite I have the informal photo show & tell about the Ireland & Isle of Man pilgrimage, and at 11pm the spirit work and PTSD joint session with [livejournal.com profile] druid_medb will be happening in Carmel/Monterey. I suspect that one will be pretty well attended.

Sadly, my day starts rather earlier than I would like. There's a pre-ritual meeting in our room early in the day, so the alarm goes off at 9am. I don't see things I'm likely to be very conscious for at the 11am session, so I will probably be dealing with something vaguely resembling breakfast at that hour.

After the Lupercalia ritual, I got a chance to meet an African Raven, brought to the festival by Our Thracian Colleague. He is a beautiful bird and I got a chance to hold him and talk to him a bit and ruffle his feathers. He's got unusual coloring for a raven, in that he has some grey feathers and his eyes, rather than having gone to black, are a dark grey-amber color. He's really amazing and I'm going to see if I can take a few photos of him tomorrow if I run into Andrew during the day. That was really quite a treat!

And now, given that it is going on 2am, I'm goingt to check a couple of other websites and then head up to find myself a little snooze.

I got in to Greyhaven in mid-afternoon. Errands were run, much jollity was had, ritual was ritualed. Tomorrow will be more prep, running of errands, and packing for the con. Friday, Pagan chaos! I'll be seeing some of you there!
erynn: Gaelic merman image (Whitman: not all who wander)
I arrived safely about 45 minutes ago. More later!
erynn: Gaelic merman image (Whitman: not all who wander)
I arrived here about 3:30, then we went out to have Chinese for late lunch. After that we walked across the street to a bookshop (I didn't find anything myself). We are now back at [livejournal.com profile] blindwebster's place having a chat. [livejournal.com profile] alfrecht's book has been delivered.

Breakfast has yet to be accomplished, but that will be dealt with shortly just down the street. As per usual, I didn't sleep that well, but it's only to be expected. The place was reasonably quiet and I at least rested reasonably.

I'm on my way to Sacramento today to see [livejournal.com profile] blindwebster and will deliver my package from [livejournal.com profile] alfrecht to her.

There needs to be tea. Tea and foooood.

Thanks again to everyone for all your best travel wishes. See you again in Sacramento!

I stopped right on time at abouto 2pm at [livejournal.com profile] martianmooncrab's place, where we went for lunch at Cypress. Lovely lamb kebabs and middle eastern appetizers. She showed me around the garden and handed me a bunch of strawberries and snap peas and a few red and black raspberries for the road, which were very very yummy. I got back on the road about 3pm or so and arrived in Ashland at just after 8pm. I was in time to walk down to the Thai place about a block and a half away, where I had a very tasty dinner and then wandered back to the hostel.

I'm tired after a day on the road. Checkout is tomorrow at 10am, and my next stop will be Sacramento with [livejournal.com profile] blindwebster. There are only four people at the hostel tonight, all of us female, two deaf women and another, younger gal who is (like me) deeply engrossed in her computer. I'll be curling up in a cozy chair with a book in just a little bit, then bed early so that I can hit the road on time in the morning. I didn't sleep well last night, but I never do before I travel, so it was only to be expected. I've got a lovely knot in my right shoulder and will try taking something a little stronger than tylenol to try to resolve it before I have to drive tomorrow.

And now, curling up with a book.

Thanks, everyone, for your good wishes! I really appreciate them.

Today was laundry and packing the last of the things I'll need for the week. I hauled everything but my bag with my clothes and stuff out to the car this afternoon. The poor DoDC+3 is kind of frantic. He knows I'm leaving because he's watched all the packing and whatnot. He was upset enough last night that I had to have him sleep in his kennel because he just wouldn't settle.

I spent several hours reading this and that for research and did the outline and remaining notes for the Brigid and Sarasvati workshop this weekend. I've got a contact number for someone I'll be seeing in Portland on the way home. I'll be posting here about when I'm in town (July 2nd) and let folks know details if they want to meet me at Powell's and they're able to make it. It'll probably be early- to mid-afternoon, depending on when I get to [livejournal.com profile] martianmooncrab's from Eugene.

I'm about as calm as I can be before I set out on a road trip. I feel like I did a reasonably good job getting things settled, considering how much I had to deal with before this trip. Any details I've forgotten for Ireland and Europe I can try to resolve while I'm home next week.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone when I get to Eight Winds, and to seeing [livejournal.com profile] blindwebster the day before. I'm trying not to think too much about everything and just go with it and let go of some of the anxiety. It feels like the launch of something huge (which it is), but I'm up to it. I probably won't sleep much tonight because I rarely sleep well at all before I take a road trip. I'll be up about 8-ish tomorrow morning and out the door around 10am, if all goes to plan. I like to get out just after the worst of rush hour has passed so that I don't get massively delayed by traffic. I expect I'll be in to [livejournal.com profile] martianmooncrab's place by around 2pm tomorrow, as usual, so lunch in Oregon City, then points south. I'll stop for the night at the Ashland Hostel; they have wifi so I'll be able to catch up with a little of the day and check in on everyone.

To the other folks traveling to the festival this week, smooth sailing to you and safe travels. Slán!

Today I hung out with the folks in #writechat and #poetparty, talking about writing stuff and my recent poetry publication in Written River. Both were a good way to get my mind out of my frantic last couple of days before the road trip.

I got out to the store to run a couple of errands today that needed to be done. Work was done on the Brigid and Sarasvati workshop, and I remembered to scan and print copies of a page that had been forgotten yesterday, and emailed it off to the guy who was making copies of the other things. Further work on that can take place tomorrow. I dug out some copies of articles and such that might be relevant for one or more of the things I'll be doing at Eight Winds.

Speaking of which, does anyone have a copy of either of these articles:

Liminality in Early Irish Literature: The Madness of Suibhne Geilt by Bridgitte K. Slavin, Journal of the Australian Early Medieval Association 2007 (didn't have page numbers)

The Irish Berdman: Kingship and Liminality in Buile Suibhne from Text and Transmission in Medieval Europe, Celtic Studies Publications 2007, pp 17-45

I think I'm reading my notes right on those. Anyway, if you have any idea where I might find copies, please let me know.

[livejournal.com profile] blindwebster's address was added to the god of navigation. I edited the manuscript for Fireflies at Absolute Zero again and sent it off to Hiraeth Press.

I had lunch today over at Emory's. It was warm and sunny for a while, and I grabbed a cup of clam chowder and a salad out on their back deck, sitting in the sunlight. It was really pleasant, and a good break from the work I was doing. Later, at home, I made some lentil soup and had that for dinner. I may nibble something further before I go to bed tonight.

Tonight is also my flamekeeping shift, and the altar is lit up. I got [livejournal.com profile] tdancinghands and the sib in contact with one another about the Prague part of my trip. He wants to spend a couple of days there, not having been before, and she's up for that and made a few suggestions about places for him to stay. I sent her email off to him so that they both have each others' email addresses and can work out the details between them. I'm not really in a position to be the go-between right now.

Answered a late email from [livejournal.com profile] ogam and hope that the answer was helpful. [livejournal.com profile] ingvisson and [livejournal.com profile] gra_is_stor are here again tonight, after having spent all day working on her moving.

Tomorrow: laundry, finish packing, finish dealing with the notes for the Brigid and Sarasvati workshop. Everything I can do for the pilgrimage right now is done, as far as I know. If there's anything else, [livejournal.com profile] vyviane and Jhenah will have to wait until I get home again next Monday before I'll have time and bandwidth to deal with it.

Today brought the sib's contact information, which went into the itinerary file. I need to send it over to the iPad again now that it's complete.

[livejournal.com profile] seanthedruid sent me the Eight Winds food plan menu and it looks like, aside from my tea and a few snacky things and juice, I won't really have to take any food things along. This means that I was able to stuff the cooler and the big camp stove back into the garage. I'll just take the single-burner propane stove I use when I don't need more cooking space. Unneeded things went into the camping gear bin that will stay in the living room until I get home and can re-pack what I won't be taking with me to Europe.

All my necessary camping gear went into my duffel bag, except the camp chair and a couple of candle lanterns, and all of that went into Garuda's trunk, so that's ready for Tuesday morning. I've packed about half of what I need for clothing and stuff, cleared up the project I was working on in the living room and stowed the crafts supplies, and put a bunch of research books away. Monday will be a laundry day, so that pretty much everything but what I'm wearing will be clean when I leave on Tuesday morning. Dishes got done. I weighed the bag I'm using as a carryon. It didn't have everything I'll be taking with me to Ireland, but it had a bunch of things in it I won't be taking, and it weighed slightly less than 11 pounds. I think I'll be able to get under the 22 pound weight limit if I consider everything carefully.

Tomorrow I concentrate on reviewing notes and sources for the Brigid and Sarasvati presentation at Eight Winds next weekend. I have to put [livejournal.com profile] blindwebster's address into my god of navigation so that I can find her. Directions to the campsite have to be written down in a place where I can find them, since last year the god of navigation attempted to have me drive across a lake to get there. Over the last week, the stress has been aggravating the whole acid reflux thing, which is kind of nasty, but I'm carrying on.

I think tomorrow I'll also put a notice on the pilgrimage email list that I'll be out of town for a week, so if anyone wants to talk to me or ask me questions, they should do so and I'll get back to them once I get home again. I'll have six days at home before I get on the plane for Ireland. Tomorrow is also my last flamekeeping shift before I hit the road. (I need to remember to pack a battery-operated candle so that I can deal with it while I'm in Europe. I may have to go buy one, as I can't find the one I had around here previously.)

Still crazy busy, but that's my life.

Today I got out and got the AAA batteries I needed, and a memory chip for the camera. Papers that needed to be signed were signed, then turned into a PDF and sent off to the appropriate parties. 10 copies of my Brigid & Sarasvati packet were printed for Eight Winds, and someone else asked for the files so he could make more, as he was sure that 10 weren't going to be enough. I sent the files to him. He'll bring more copies with him to the festival.

The Airmed ritual was expanded with more direction about what's actually happening in it, and I sent it off to [livejournal.com profile] vyviane and Jhenah. Everything else seems about as complete as I can make it without attempting to script the rituals, which just doesn't really seem appropriate for the ones in question. I need to email [livejournal.com profile] vyviane again about the herbs specifically for the Airmed ritual so that we're on the same page about that. She's been really busy trying to fill the last couple of slots - we had one person have to cancel, and he's wanting to get something back from it, so he's offering his space for a reduced rate. If you're interested, contact [livejournal.com profile] vyviane or let me know and I'll pass the word along.

I put together the visual aids (ogam letter graphics) for each of the writing exercises and meditations we'll be doing for the pilgrimage, and printed them out. I printed out the revised personal itinerary with the updated contact information for everyone that I have so far. I still need to get my sib's phone number and actual street address in Italy for the contact information file. The only address I have for him right now is an APO, which isn't much use if someone needs to know where I actually am staying.

I transferred a bunch of pilgrimage files over onto my iPad, where I have a program I can actually use to open .docx files, though formatting (in terms of fonts like the ogam font) isn't necessarily highly functional. I'm not sure how to transfer fonts into the program, nor have I been able to figure it out via the manual or the help website. It's not critical, but that's why I've made the ogam letter graphics files and printed them out.

I made some black eyed peas and gluten-free cornbread today. [livejournal.com profile] gra_is_stor should be here shortly, after having hauled as much of her stuff as she could today. She had a couple of people to help, but not enough to get everything done in one day. I've just been too crazy busy to be able to help.

Tomorrow, more prep for Eight Winds. I have to start packing my clothes and any books and whatnot I want to take for others to have a look at, and I have to make sure that I have all the camping stuff I need. I'm pretty sure I do, but it wouldn't hurt to go through the list again.

Yet more things done today - I finished writing the closing ritual for the pilgrimage, revised the opening ritual, and dealt with a critical bit of personal paperwork that I need to go have witnessed and probably notarized tomorrow. I haven't heard anything back from the folks at Eight Winds, but I have a few days before I would really need to be concerned and, to be honest, if it comes right down to it I can buy stuff at a grocery store nearby and have somebody with a cooler store it for me. Not the end of the world if I don't have a menu for the food plan before I leave.

[livejournal.com profile] alfrecht was talking about possibly getting together with me after July 4th but before I leave for Ireland, which would be nice. I gather he's going down to the King Tut exhibition at the Seattle Art Museum. I'd love to go but I just don't have time right now. It'll be here until next year and right now I have other priorities.

Exhaustion is really starting to catch up with me. I haven't slept well for quite some time, probably at least in large part due to stress from all the "you must be an adult" I've been doing of late. Sleep is for the weak anyway, right?

In addition to dealing with paperwork tomorrow, I have to remember to get AAA batteries for my headlamp and an extra memory chip for the camera. I also have to expand upon the Airmed rituals and look over the incubation rituals again and expand them a little, as they are really primarily outlines at the moment. Not that I intend to script everything, but that it needs at least a little stage direction and whatnot.

I feel like I'm forgetting something. Y'all tell me if you know what it is, eh?
