15 took part in GOG's Midsummer Night's Dream walkaround ritual in New Brunswick. Karl did a mighty fine job as Druid-in-Charge, organizing and working out Shakespeare's script in the context of an ADF Druid ritual. 14 people either took ritual parts, or parts in the play-within-a-play (Pyramus and Thisbe, as heckled by Oberon, Titania, and Puck). Norma, Blue, and Jen were three scary fairies. We had some glorious rhymed and metered invocations (Nora's Fire-Well-Tree was breathtaking off-the-cuff invoking!) We made a pretty parade through the city in our fairy finery.
Our omens, scryed in flower petals: joyous chaos, dancing figures, a dancer balancing on a ball, lots of dragonflies, flowers made of petals. "Dance and balance in joyful chaos." Or, as Puck interpreted: "Smiling Dragonfly Balls" (which is now her new magickal name).
A big thank you to all who brought cans and food to GOG's summer food drive!
