The ceremony took place with much work and love and blessings and excitement, and only a couple of problems on the 21st! My 13 month journey has come to an end. My lifelong journey continues.

This journal will, for the time being, continue as a record of what I am learning in the wake of my initiation.

Papa and I will decide thereafter if I will maintain this as a journal for my Papa, or weave it back in to my main journal.

Entries will still be friends-locked. You are still welcome to comment here to request entry. I am still unlikely to friend folks I don't already know.

I have luck.

Be Well,

In November of 2009 I will be Headwashed to my Papa Ghede. This journal is meant to document the 13 months of deliberate preparation between now and then.

The entries will all be friends-locked. If you are interested in reading this journal, leave a comment here. However, if I do not already know you from my main journal, I am unlikely to friend you here.

Wish me luck.

Be well,

It is shinier than I knew. The festival is real. It is the work of people who want to preserve the practices of the day. And according to the website they were helped by:

Historical background provided by:
Dr. Constance Cortez, Department of Art and Art History
Santa Clara University
500 El Camino Real
Santa Clara, California 95053
office phone 408.554.5482

If you don't know them, go talk eh?

What gets me is I could have gone this year. I knew about the event, but I didn't picture it like this, I pictured it.... less familiar feeling?

I feel like I'd fit right into this, no questions. What I'd pictured... yeah, I don't know what to say other than that I missed a boat, but it comes 'round each year, so I'm not really lost. Perhaps it was best I didn't try to cram it into my schedule this year anyway.

If I go, though, I want [ profile] nelwyn to come too, and uh, we'll definitely need warders. And possibly Mama's permission to go out of bounds...
