What happened last night was epic. We had 15 people over here (including me) for the event. My spiritual brother got elevated to Elder Bard. I got Barded, and THEN raised to Elder Bard. (Priestess’ excuse was “You already ARE one, why do you need the ceremony?” Which was one question I needed to answer.) The fact that so many in my Community were in attendance (at my tiny place) was so heartwarming and made it that much more special.
Two years ago, I told my Community I wasn’t even a Bard. I don’t have that excuse anymore.
