Guess who’s back?
I just had the shortest, most unusual Foundation Day ritual yet for Antinous, due to the fact that in less than an hour, I have to leave for work, and will be working most of the night tonight. While I do like that I’m this adaptable in my practices, I also would rather have the pageantry of a huge ritual at night with lots of people–or, failing “lots,” at least one other. This is, if I remember right, the first time in modern Antinoan history that I’ve not been able to have at least one other person with me. I made it work, with the help of Nyx and Polydeukion, but nonetheless…O, for the old days of (temporary) temples and (provisional and small) throngs of devotees!
I’ll have to give further details at another time, and also the new “Frankensteinian” devotional text in Greek that I created for this purpose.
But, I hope that everyone reading this, and many more, have a very good Foundation Day indeed, and many more in the future!
Ave Ave Antinoe! Ave Ave Antinoe!
Haec est unde, Haec est unde, Haec est unde vita venit!
