Solstice June 21, 2011

Recommended Posts

Well gang, even if our ritual was a night late, we had a good turn out last night. We expected only about 8 or 10 but had an amazing 27 people...also a very good "sacred" number. Unfortunately our "honored guest" had a previous committment and could not be with us on the 21st. However, ancient traditional runic rites often lasted 2, 3 even four weeks culminating on the Solstice, the longest day of the year and the official start of Summer.

After giving the rites we had a long "Bard Session" and our old timer Braggsson was in full attitude and wardrobe, as was everyone except one fellow that came straight from work. Many horns of mead were drunk, even though our brew-master did make it light on alcohol content..almost N/A! Makes for a much more pleasant gathering. At an hour before sunset we did our usual governance Blessing to Sunni, the sun, for continued good blessings of growth for our crops etc. We also did Manni's Rite, at midnight, which is full on ritualistic Blessings to and from the Moon for continued good tidings.

I was pleased to see that our hof (my personal group) all showed up and represented. Brand, from the So Cal EAUQ's...and the one who gave me my sword scar on my chest, made a surprise appearance and was acting as Hagarth's personal escort (security) who was our esteemed honored guest. We had a lot to catch up on as it's been nearly 12 years since seeing him! All in all..a great night, even if my physical condition pays greatly today!

Blessings to all for wonderful, enlightening Summer!

Blessings of Peace,
