Sigh... sometimes I feel like these weekly posts should be titled "A Dozen More Reasons Pallas Needs to Get Over Himself and Move to London Already." I'd have to drag myself around half the States to find all this.

I think London is possibly the best city in the world to live in at the moment if you are a pagan or interested in mind, body, spirit events. Glastonbury probably has more going on in respect of the relative size of the two spiritual centres, but London offers such a variety of things.
