A visit with Alexei - SF Bay Area CR community

About A visit with Alexei

Previous Entry A visit with Alexei Jul. 31st, 2007 @ 09:42 am Next Entry
I just got a note from Alexei Kondratiev (for those who don't recognize the name, he's the author of The Apple Branch, one of the few modern Celtic books on what can be seen as CR - at least from certain angles) saying that he's going to be in the Bay Area for a conference starting on the 3rd. He's busy with said conference through the 5th, but won't be flying back home until the 10th. He'd like to arrange to get together with local CRs during his stay. He will be mostly confined to public transit, so we (the locals) would need to arrange to go to his area rather than having him come to us.

Anyone interested in working out days/times?

With that accent shouldn't that have been "mon-sewer"?

I'd love to meet up withhim and other local CRs, but what sort of meet up would it be? informal? presentation? discussion? dinner? drinks? all of the above? none of the above?

I'd say it could be just about any of the above, though I'm not sure about the presentation. I could ask him about that, but I get the impression is would be on more of a level of friends/colleagues, rather than teacher/student.

hmmm. Just thinking about what I want and could contribute to this sort of thing.

It would probabaly be a pretty small group anyway, right?

Given that the total number od CRs living in the Bay Area is rather small, yes, a small group is, indeed, indicated. That said, if you want to come, please do and go fill out the poll saying when you're available. He's got a few days free. I'm sure some mutuall agreeable time can be found to get together.

I really want to support the event and the community and meet him of course. It seems like he and most other CRs are into the Irish thing, and I do Welsh and British, but hey I bet it could be a lot of fun.

Oh and I know several people who aren't on LJ or in this LJ community but are interested in ancient Celtic culture and religion. Is this event going to be limited to this LJ community or will it be open to other people?

I can see how you'd get that impression, since the Irish sources are the most well known.

As for letting other people know, that's OK within some parameters. He asked for the opportunity to get together with local CRs. It's not just the LJ CRs, but it is focused on CR.
