Presentations like this really make me wish I were in a position to make it out to the Polytheist Leadership Conference in Fishkill this summer. After PantheaCon, however, I reckoned that I unfortunately wouldn’t have either the money or the vacation days for such a venture. I must admit, though, that as I kept seeing the presentations come in—from the Ephesia Grammata to the gods and the good—my thoughts ran ahead of themselves. What if I could go? I might fly rather than drive—that would save time. Indeed, why might I not join the conversation? I was, as immodest as this may sound, well advanced in a mental rough draft for a presentation and discussion of my own, when it occurred to me to double-check the dates in question. No dice. This was the very weekend slated for a family reunion in Milwaukee, which I’m not really in a position to miss.
I have only to remind myself that, after all, I never did have the money or vacation days to spare, and to convey my very sincerest blessings on the whole undertaking. Any chance of an audio recording of some of the sessions, I wonder?
