Saturday and Sunday nights were really fun even though Saturday it was uncomfortably cold and we all wished we had down parkas. Still, we danced round the bonfire in a Full Moon ritual. It is something my character, Grace, does with her women friends every full moon. I had my friend, Cristina Biaggi, come and teach us a “Luna” chant. As I have said in an earlier blog, she went to Vassar and, while there, would do the same sort of ritual honoring the full moon and we were all rather in awe of what we viewed as her exoticism. The other women present for the scene were fascinated by Cristina’s explanations of Goddess worship in Neolithic times, pre-patriarchy. She has written a number of books about the Goddess. (She is also a well known sculptor) Later in the evening, we all drink tequila and play Truth or Lies in the scene. Both nights we worked till 5:30-6am!!! But it was worth it and we had a blast!
These other photos are of different moments over the previous week, taken by Annie Miller, our indomitable prop “master,” who has become a skilled chicken wrangler.
I couldn’t post these various photos sooner cause I just got them. My camera battery was dead and I didn’t find my recharger till just now.
