Time keeps on ticking towards the Sacramento Pagan Pride Festival, and boy am I excited! Busy, but excited!
I have never been a part of something like this before due to the fact I had felt so alone as a Pagan in Sacramento because I didn’t take the time to open my eyes. Which got me thinking about perception. I perceived like I was one of a few, but in reality, I wasn’t.
How many Pagans out there feel the way I had felt? Even if there is one person who feels this way, it is already too many.
My point is, this festival is not just a place to have a good time. That will already occur, but this is a time to enjoy each other’s company while feeling the blessings bestowed upon us by the Lord and Lady! To reach out and feel the warmth of love in each and every strange face we have the privilege of meeting. Knowing that we don’t have to hide who we are, if only for a few hours a day.
This Pagan Pride Festival means so much more to me than words can describe! As I said before, this is a chance for me to feel a part of something. This is a chance for me to introduce my 11 year old stepson to my belief structure. This is a chance for me to feel the acceptance I have been missing since the Forest Moon Grove in Iraq.
Take a look inward, what does the Sacramento Pagan Pride Festival mean to you? I would love to hear it!
