I've been away from the Order for several months. The victim of a fly-by initiation. Well, okay...it wasn't fly-by...I did it Willingly to myself. However, as most of _us_ know; any magickal ritual we perform changes us in ways that may not be evident for weeks or even months or years. Initiatory rituals are meant to be a transforming experiences. This one absolutely was.
Mass was lovely, I'll post a picture of our local priest and priestess later. I'm in the living room of the post-mass social that usually occurs. I've missed being around these people. With everything going on, I've sort of felt like my own little deserted island. I'm still not back in the mesh with everything around me....But at least I seem to be sailing back to shore.
