Highlander The Celebration, how appropriate this title was for this event. Indeed A celebration of Highlander: The Series, it's creators, the stars and most importantly the fans. From around the world we all converged on Anaheim California, oddly mirroring the often referenced GATHERING in the world of Highlander. This was to be the mother of all conventions and it did not disappoint, at least not me.

Many thanks go to Gina, Misti, Christine, Kerry, Melissa, Jennifer, Robert, Pavel and the countless others who worked night and day (I saw them I know) and who made this a true celebration.

I had no great expectations going in, other than the trepidation of finally meeting face to face people with whom I had shared myself for almost the last two years. We were all drawn together first in a bulletin board system, then email, chat rooms and phone calls. This was to be no small event. Not only would I see in one contained area the cast, staff and crew of the TV show, but my friends, my kindred spirits if you will. I don't know which caused me more apprehension. Would I be disappointed in the stars, or would my Internet friends be more disappointed in me. We had people flying in from literally around the world, our friend Beltane from Australia, fullmoon and frank from Canada, others from across our own 50 states. Stardust all the way from New Jersey to California for the first time, Jazz from Texas, and Ziggystar and Vendlyn from Seattle, and our dear Mousie from Denver.  What a stellar group we were to be for the next few days.

What follows is but one persons view of this celebration. The unexpected suprises along the way, and the fellowship and yes love shared during this one brief moment in time. Oh and lets not forget the close encounters of the highlander kind!
