Thanks to Karen Timper and her group (New Jersey Ghost Organization) for holding the event. Thanks to everyone who bought books and Graven Images Oracle decks, and all the folks who chose me to do their readings. I was honored.
I had a very full lecture room for my Wicca 101 presentation, and that was well received. Sorry to anyone who wanted to speak with me after. I had people lined up for readings (for which they had already paid) and I couldn't stop to chat, much as I would have enjoyed that. Take heart! My e-mail address and blog address were in the give-away packets we handed out during the lecture, so feel free to use them. There were some very interesting questions raised during the presentation that I would love to discuss at greater length!
Thanks also to:
!) Charlene for being my driver, fetch, carry, promoter and friend. I can always count on you to chat up my talents!
2) Keith, the nephew, for being there all day, running errands, helping break down my area after the show, and allowing me to use him as a point of focus during my talk on directing energy. There's nothing like a room full of people pointing their fingers at you by command of your aunt. Hope the paranoia after-glow faded quickly.
3) Thanks to my friend Lori from Philadelphia, who braved the trip with kids and buddy in tow, only to get lost. At least you made it to the presentation and, hopefully, got to see a few vendors before they packed up. You took it in your stride. That's why I love ya!
4) ..And thanks to Ellen, who made time in a busy day to come, only to find me drowning in a sea of people. Yipes! Sorry I had to neglect you.

Now for the musical selection. You may remember the opening of this music as the theme from "Alfred Hitchcock Presents"... if you're as old as dust, like me. The show went off the air in 1962, but anyone who remembers it will think of Hitch's profile as soon as the music starts. (The rest of you can look it up on YouTube!) Here, then, is Gounod's "Funeral March for a Marionette". (It starts a bit slow, but keep watching.)
