This past year I have been honored to be a planner/ coordinator for this years Columbia Willamette Pagan Pride Day. It has been a lot of fun and has really forced me to step out of my solitary place and start mingling more with fellow pagans in my area. I realize I am very lucky in the fact that I live in a part of the country where there are a lot of us, and we don't have to be fearful about being out in the public eye. Some people I know are not quite so lucky.
In my new journey of being more a part of the Pagan community I do feel a sense of realizing what I was missing and wanting to never again be quite so distant from my fellow pagans again. It is a wonderful and beautiful community of people. I have had a lot of fun helping to plan workshops, find vendors and this year my Novices of the Old Ways West group will be in charge of hosting a children's area. As my group is one of almost all Mommies I knew they were a perfect fit for such an endeavor. I am so excited for this years event it should be wonderful.
