So, I'm debating about going to the Witch's Ball this weekend. I want to go, but funds are a wee bit tight, as it is in between pay cheques and I just paid rent. This week I've been living off my tips in the salon, but work hasn't been busy this week, so what I do get affords me milk & bread every couple of days and bus fare to get to & from work, oh yeah lunch, too. I hate being broke...it sucks.
I really want to get out there to meet my fellow Pagans in the city, but then again...are they all going to be college-age fluffy bunnies who just want to play dress up?? There's not a lot here in Halifax, in terms of anything Pagan. The Nova Scotia Pagan Alliance (NSPA) holds monthly meetings, I go when I can (when my son is at his dad's), but the majority of the people who attend these are college-age....there a a couple of older people who go, but I find the topics a bit mundane. There are pub meets that another group puts on, but they hold them on the first Wednesday night of the month, either here in Halifax or across the harbour in Dartmouth. I don't know about you, but I can't go to a pub in the middle of the week when I have to work the next morning. Needless to say, I haven't been to one of their meet 'n greets. There are public rituals held on the Sabbats, but I don't feel comfortable sharing a ritual with people who don't fully appreciate the meanings & symbolism. I do want to get out there in the Pagan community, but I'm at a loss as to how to go about doing it.
Maybe I will save up my tips these next couple of days and get all gussied up in my finest Witchiness & go. I could cast a spell on the bartender so I can get free drinks........n'ah, that's not ethical, but it would be fun ;-)
