Note: The Cauldron was the first gatherette to plan Queer Magic 2008. It took place over the weekend of the Autumn Equinox, September 21-23, 2007.

to vision, plan, and organize
a larger Queer Magic gathering
to take place in 2008.

in the back seat of a speeding convertible
with Spirit at the wheel
in a chiffon scarf and big sunglasses.

and the planning process

is a seedbed for an ongoing
community of magical practice
whose work is barely revealed
and whose potential is immeasurable.
in an Autumn Equinox event
for the whole community
on Sunday, September 24 (details to come).
is not for tourists
or do-me queens
or those with rigid expectations.

and other magical practitioners
at any level of experience
who share the vision for a Queer Magic gathering
and want to form a committed working circle
and an ongoing community of practice.
