Now this is a festival I would attend

Gnostic Conjure just led me to the Traditional Folk Magic Festival. It happens over my birthday weekend. I had wanted to go to Paris for my 35th birthday, but since I got married a month after my 34th, we decided to shift my trip. (Husband is theoretically OK with me taking vacations alone. In practice, notsomuch.)  This is tempting, although it’s doubtful I could raise the plane fair and class fees in time. I’m bookmarking this and hoping it happens again – I love New Orleans, and I haven’t been able to pay my respects since before that big storm.
