June 24th, 2008

This weekend, we had a wonderful summer solstice celebration. A few of the sisters, sadly, could not make it, but we still had a great time and a great solstice ritual and picnic Thankfully, Yogi and Boo-Boo did not pay us any visits!

Tim Lake helped us with the last of the doorway and hall project. The last, stubborn bit was a heavy beam that supported the door which had been nailed to the wall with 8-inch long barn nails. Thanks to Tim for helping remove something that had been stumping us!

Randi and Felicia from Woodstock joined us for our barbecue and ritual. They are both very skilled drummers who are fixtures at Woodstock’s weekly public drum circle. Later that evening, Randi entertained us with stories of her days as a micro-broadcaster in New York City during the 1970’s and 1980’s. Right now she is working on getting a micro-broadcasting license for herself in Woodstock. Stay tuned……
