I got email today from Storm at Immanion/Megalithica that A Circle of Stones was released today and is now available for purchase! You can click on the cover art here and it'll take you over to their website, where it can be ordered!

Circle of Stones cover

Given the release, I'll be removing the information about the PDF of the first edition from my website shortly. The first edition will officially no longer be available except as a used paperback, if you can find one. I won't be getting as much per copy, obviously, but at least there will be the corrections and contextualization in the new edition that I think make me at least vaguely more comfortable having it out there again. I still don't think of it as anything at all like my best work. It's a product of its time and place.

I talked to an intern at the women's clinic at the VA today about meds issues. She's going to give me a scrip for 20 tylenol with codeine for the trip to Europe, and a scrip for 500mg tylenol as well, so that everything I take with me will be official prescription meds. I'll talk to my regular doc when I get back from Europe about actually dealing with useful meds for my fibro; she's on maternity leave until September, apparently. I also got a referral to podiatry for my achy feet to see if there's anything actually wrong, if it's just the fibro, and if I can maybe get some decent orthopedic inserts for my shoes if they might help.

After group today, I headed down to Travelers for chai and spent about two hours flipping through books and making notes on stuff toward the pilgrimage. I feel like I'm getting a better feel for the shape of the daily writing exercises and starting to get some ideas for actual poems and readings for each day. I also need to go over stuff that I've posted to the pilgrimage email list and see what I've sent them and what I need to link to or suggest/recommend for further reading and research for folks before we actually get to Ireland.

Aside from that, I'm just generally feeling creaky and will probably be hitting ye olde sack pretty soon.

Today got off to a rather slow start, but I went over to Edmonds to check out the Rick Steves travel store. After looking around, I made an appointment to talk to someone there for half an hour later this month about my trip this summer, so that I could figure out what would be the best way to get from place to place for the cheapest prices, find hostels where I don't have couches/spare beds to crash on, how to ship my camping gear back home, and deal with other issues that they no doubt have more expertise on than yours truly.

After this, I headed down to Seattle. I-5 south was a parking lot from about Lake Forest Park down all the way into Seattle. It took considerably longer to get there than I'd expected, but I wasn't in a hurry. I met [livejournal.com profile] gra_is_stor at the Time Travelers Rummage Sale and said hi to a bunch of the local steampunks before popping out next door for some late lunch. Sadly, food wasn't edible for [livejournal.com profile] gra_is_stor, even though they tried. What I had wasn't bad, but she couldn't eat any of it due to allergy issues. One of the dishes they brought out had soy in it -- soy sauce, which was not a thing I have ever encountered in Indian food before. Anyway, after that, we went back to her place, where she got food she could actually eat, and she did a little work on my shoulders/arms. My right arm is doing better though, sadly, my left arm is still pretty much a mess.

A little after 7pm, we headed down to the Tin Can Studio for the show with [livejournal.com profile] meddevi and [livejournal.com profile] nathan_fhtagn and his band. (Tonight they were called "Serious Bidness" for they are the Band of Ever-Changing Names.) The show was fantastic and fun, with lots of great dancing, gothy swotting about, writhing, candle ogling, and being vamped by hot butch babes. Well, okay, I got vamped by a hot butch babe. You do not hear me complaining. *happysigh*

The high point of the evening was when [livejournal.com profile] nathan_fhtagn's mom did a tap-dance dance-off with belly-dancing [livejournal.com profile] meddevi to Eye of the Tiger. Played on banjo. Surreality FTW! (This just edged out the hot butch babe vamping me, barely.) ;)

My life. It is an amazingly wonderful thing some days. I have such incredibly talented and fabulous friends.

In a few minutes I'll be doing the last packout to Garuda for the trip to points south.

This morning in the email I got notice that my proposal for Ogam: From Medieval Manuscripts to Modern Magicians was accepted for the Esoteric Book Conference this fall here in Seattle. I'm very excited about this and will probably have more information for you when I get home. Their website still has the info for 2011 up, but watch the page for updates, as they wanted presenter info by the 20th for inclusion on the page.

To those of you traveling to PCon this weekend, find me! Say hi! I'll see you in San Jose.

Thank you to the folks who have sent good wishes for travel. They are greatly appreciated. I'll check in tonight from Ashland.
