Welcome to "The Gods Are Becoming Less and Less Bored All the Time!" I'm your host, Anne Johnson ... soon to be Leader of the Mountain Tribe at the Fairie Festival at Spoutwood Farm!!!
I am hyperventilating.
You know what they say about one man's something or other being another man's something or another ... geez, I can't remember it exactly. But the other night on Facebook, Bibi commented that she was in search of someone with leadership abilities and rudimentary knowledge of faeries, with willingness to explore potential in a growth-oriented environment.
Something like that.
Always in search of adventure, I applied immediately, furnishing suitable references (thanks, Puck!). During the detailed interview -- three messages back and forth, to be exact -- I expounded upon my vast experience as a vulture mascot, my encyclopedic knowledge of faeries (or at least I know one when I see one), my winning personality, and my peerless ability to cleanse upholstery of every pesky stain.
Whoa. I got the volunteer position!
It's a big deal being Leader of a Tribe. There are only four Tribes -- Mountain being far and away the tip-top of the heap -- and as many as 20,000 people come to this Fairie Fest. It will be my job to snag as many of those people as possible to enrich and enliven my Tribe.
To make matters best, my daughter The Spare has offered to help. Which means we'll have a good chance of attracting some of the young cutie pies in kilts.
Do you live in the Baltimore/Washington/Philly/New Jersey/Wilmington metro areas?
Oooops! I'm leading the Mountain Tribe, not the Megalopolis Tribe!
Do you feel the ancient Celtic crags calling your name? Can you sense the spring breeze ruffling the new foliage on the firs at the summit? Are you now, or have you ever been, a hiker?
If so, join me at Spoutwood for the Fairie Festival, and be part of my Tribe!
Seriously, if you want to meet me, this is a sure-fire way of getting it done.
Our operators are standing by to take your call.
THE LEADER OF THE MOUNTAIN TRIBE
