As this is published, I am still at the festival site, but the event is over. Today is the day of letting go, saying goodbye, and traveling home.
A lot of people helped me get to Eleusis this year, and I am so very grateful.
To David, my husband, who kept my tight schedule, driving me to the ferry, picking me up, having meals ready, getting up and driving the children to school when I got in at 3 in the morning, and putting up with me being away for almost every weekend in the last 3 months. I love you, and I appreciate you!
To Barb, who many weeks picked me up from the last ferry of the night and drove me home safely and let me sleep on the way.
To all the people who let me, or me and my son, sleep at your house: Russ and Gina, Joy, Shawna and Eman, Mary and Gabriel.
To Joy and Liz who let me carpool with them.
To Dawne, who has helped take over some of the Circle administration while I’ve been preoccupied.
To Karen and Marybeth, who helped with donations to make my travel easier.
To all of the ritual presenting team for supporting and encouraging me to stretch outside my comfort zone.
To Aphrodite, for helping me see beauty and love, in myself and others.
And to everyone else who has offered encouragement and support along the way.
