A few things that make me happy in the SCA

For balance:

The SCA, as a beautiful woman once pointed out to me, is about walking around Pennsic at dawn with the fog slowly lifting and the quiet giving way to activity.

The SCA is about . . . 

  • walking into Calontir camp at Pennsic, being greeted like the oldest, best friend in the world, being handed a beer and then stepping into the circle and singing with all the gusto I can muster.
  • seeing your friends get awards.
  •  seeing your friends become royalty.
  • making new friends.
  • welcoming new people.
  • eating the wonderful food that talented cooks make.
  • marveling at other people's crafts.
  • hearing the cannon, watching the rush of the armies and seeing the "Toilet Bowl of Death."
  • teaching and sharing your ideas and thoughts.
