Annika, the reason you found only older Pagans at the PWR meeting was because only older people came, not because younger folks weren't welcome.Don Frew spoke about the history of the PWR because he had expected people unfamiliar with it to be the ones who came.That turned out not to be the case, but for you.Had I known it was going to unfold as it did, I wouldn't have needed to come.I already knew most of what he had to say, and in fact have given talks on it to Pagans around the country myself.Also, there were a few people there who were older, Pagan but not Witchen, new to interfaith involvement and who had never attended PWR and who came for that reason, to familiarize themselves with what it is and how it works.

She opens the door. The man standing there is holding the dripping, severed head of a deer.
