I'm going to a secretive women's weekend this summer...where I'll be spending an intense 48 hours "examining my life" and "reclaiming parts of myself that have been lost, suppressed or misused."
I'm hoping it doesn't involve dancing naked around a bonfire.
It might be difficult.
It might be meaningful.
It might be unsettling.
I had to sign a contract in blood and tattoo the secret password on my butt...and the map to the secret location will be revealed to me in a public phone booth after I dial the encrypted number I find in a newspaper ad...oops, I've said too much.
No alcohol or drugs.
No cell phones.
No contact with the outside world!
But, we are encouraged to bring drums and rattles.
I have no idea what I've gotten into...I'm scared!!!
Yesterday I shared our Butterbeer experience in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The day before that I showed photos from the roller coaster ride The Flight of the Hippogriff. Today, it's about the castle.
This is one of the entrances to Hogwarts.
And as you walk down the hallway you can see where the House Points are recorded.
I'm not sure who this wizard is holding the replica of Hogwarts and statued in gold...
but he's in the same hallway...and way taller than I am!!
And then we came upon the entrance to the Headmaster's Office.
But we were unable to guess the password!!
The portraits talked and moved as we looked up into this tall room.
(strange camera view, I know) It's looking UP!
And more talking portraits....
And we saw the infamous pensieve!!
Tomorrow, I'll share our experience in the Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom!!
