I'm not ready...

Well, it's that time of year again. I leave in the morning for Rites of Spring and I am not ready.

Everything that can be packed at this point is packed, although not loaded into my truck yet. But the more I packed, the less ready I felt. I don't know how to explain it. I just don't feel ready.

I have been looking forward to Rites for quite a while now, as well as looking forward to spending time with TWIL. And I still am. I just suddenly feel that ...

... I don't know. Something feels off.

Maybe it has to do with all the rain we have been getting for the past 2-3 weeks, and the fact that TWIL and I will be staying in a tent. Possibly because of how big a deal some of her friends are making about the fact that she will be in a tent. But that doesn't seen like it. These feelings are somehow bigger than that.


Actually, let me clarify one thing. I will be getting to Rites tomorrow, along with a group of people who help to set the place up. TWIL will not be getting there until Wednesday, when the main group arrives. But we will have from then until we pack up, the following Monday, together. All told, by the weekend there should be almost 500 people gathered.


I can't type any more right now. There is a voice I need to hear, so I'm off to make a phone call. I don't know if I'll be back on before I leave, but in case I am not, I hope everyone has a good week. I will be in a tent with no Internet until the 29th. Don't expect anything out of me until, probably, the 30th.

For those of you on my Quote of the Day(?) list, I have left the list on autopilot so you should still get a quote every day while I'm gone.

Walk in Beauty.
