May News

So, on the 15th, we celebrated the Thargelia with a purification ritual, enthusiasmos, and offerings to the Twins, including thargeloi in the form of veggie calzones and birthday cupcakes.   The day flew by, which is probably why it's taken me nearly two weeks to write it up.  We did lots, but it seems impossible to capture in words!

This weekend, there'll be a fellowship day/movie night on Sunday the 29th, as we share one of the more accessible forms of modern drama.

Coming up in June is the Philokhoria on the 26th.  For those planning to perform a bit of belly dancing at this celebration, as a way of honoring the myth that gave rise to this modern festival, there's also a rehearsal day scheduled on the 12th.  The song we're dancing to, Tellegrafin Telleri by Turbo Tabla, is also relatively modern, which seems fitting.

That's all I've got for now.  Have a great weekend and may the Gods' blessings be with you.
