Through the Looking Glass: Beltane Potluck

On Beltane, we hosted a potluck! About twenty fae folks of all genders danced and chattered in the garden of Goldenrod, Grey, and claro's home. There were fabulous costumes: there were two red queens slumming it with the likes of carpenters and hobos, and a serenade by the Mock Turtle himself! The food was grand, including lentil burgers and sweet penis fudge. The Queen of Diamonds smashed their watch at 6PM to celebrate a personal victory. Slowly the garden filled with looking glasses, marking the time... After a late start, some lingered until it was too late to remember the hour. 

"Well, now that we have seen each other," said the unicorn, "if you'll believe in me, I'll believe in you."

'"What matters it how far we go?" his scaly friend replied.
"There is another shore, you know, upon the other side.
The further off from England the nearer is to France—
Then turn not pale, beloved snail, but come and join the dance.
    Will you, won't you, will you, won't you, 
will you join the
    Will you, won't you, will you, won't you, won't you join the

“Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” 

“Be what you would seem to be - or, if you'd like it put more simply - never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.”

Victoria Day Gathering 2016

Victoria Day Gathering

Friday May 20th to Monday May 23rd
on The Land aka Amber Fox

It's almost that time folks. The one and only Victoria Day Gathering is fast upon us.

This year we plan a Beltane May Pole rising and the Heart Circle has delivered a fabulous cherry tree that came down this winter so we can raise it up in Beltanish Victorian manner.

We should expect great food of the vegetarian bent, prepared by many of the fairest faeries to grace the Land. That would be you, or maybe you're into the chopping and dicing and grating and mixing, cleaning or dishes. We prepare our meals in community, that means we all get to participate.

There will be a Know-Talent show on Saturday night. That's the only scheduled thing. Come Friday and we can decide on when to raise the May Pole. To have a big celebratory fire.

Join a heart circle, help with a project, plan an activity and or simply enjoy the company of fae spirits.

We hope also to have a salad one evening of all that is tasty and forageable on the Land. 

The sauna is being warmed up for you, the Departure Lounge awaits your energy, the Foxy Boutique has been updated with some new cladding for your body.

You bring the energy and happy spirits will rise as the Land wakens another year.

Some can spend the night in the Bunkhouse on a first come basis, you can also sleep in the Departure Lounge but do know that the lounge goes late into the evening.  

Bring a tent or plan to share one, something to sleep on, some warm clothes and your Foxy outfits, prepare for rain and cold, and if it's sunny and warm you'll be thrilled.

All meals are vegetarian and prepared collectively and funded by the purse. We ask people to contribute $25 a day, more if you can, less if you can't.  No one turned away for lack of funds.

If you need directions get a hold of boy ricky, that's me. We are located near Perth Ontario. If you let us know, we can pick you up at the bus station in Perth or the train station in Smith Falls.

Hope to see you all as we begin another year on the Land.
