Has the fogginess of the last several days got you pondering rites of spring?
Feel like doing something different this weekend?
Remember Persephone? She's the pretty Greek gal that Hades grabbed for himself. (you know Hades, King of the Underworld- a bit self centered) Hades took her "down below" away from all the beauty up here. And while she remained in the underworld, the flowers and plants started dying up here. Fortunately for everyone, she had connections. Her father Zeus worked out a deal so Persephone could come back topside every spring. Which is what makes spring spring.
Which brings me to Persephone's Masquerade Ball brought to you by the Pagan Society happening this Saturday at The Hilton in Silver Spring. (Hey, coincidence? Silver SPRING ?)
Anyway this event is more expensive than most things I recommend, but it is a benefit and $30 get you in for the dessert and dancing portion of the evening. (about 8:30-1) The Rhodes Tavern Troubadours will be presiding over the dancing.
Or you could stay home and do your taxes.
