8th 2006: Yemaya
New Year's Beach Run
ritual led by Deb, with good weather (in spite of the forecasters' predictions)
and good omens, including a woman from New Orleans who joined us and
asked to float her own offering out. She asked us to bless her city.
Bunch of us got wet, but the ocean goddess was lovely, who can blame
us? 9 people attended. We made boats of flowers and melons, and the
ocean took them. We gave Her flowers. Then we ate, played arcade games.
