I have family in the Wilkes-Barre Scranton area if that is more your way? Maybe someday we can plan a big regional PA get together?

That would be great. I think we should do a Watkins Glenn thing.  We could all camp in my home county (Tioga, PA), then do a day trip to the Glen.  Or we could camp at the Glen.  http://nysparks.com/parks/142/details.aspx

Camping?!  Oh please no, I have tried that with the Druids and have come to dislike it immensely.  Perhaps a small hotel as a home base and go from there.  I like being in nature, just not sleeping in it.  ;)

But yes we need a PA and area gathering....

hotel is an option.  Camping is much cheaper, though, for people on tight budgets.   Unfortunately, I'm not able to host a gathering at my home, as that would be an ideal solution. :(

We could find an area that rents small cabins, or a area where there is camping available for those who prefer. Anything done would need to be handicapped /disabled accessable.
Tried to join in wiccan covens but was told that my inability to  stand/need for aides was undo able.  It was most disheartening

Em hotep, Noof! Welcome to the forums; I hope you enjoy your time here. ^_^

If the Judith Paige books are the ones I'm thinking of, I wouldn't recommend them for a background in Kemetic Orthodoxy. (You might find interesting material in them, but it mostly wouldn't be relevant to what we do.) Rev. Siuda's book, which Tahai mentioned, is a good choice. For more general Egyptian lore, Richard Wilkinson's Complete Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt is a big book, but if you can afford it, it's a reference work that you'll never regret having. I also highly recommend his Reading Egyptian Art, which is a great introduction to Kemetic symbolism.

RE focusing on the Names: what Shemi said. ^_^

Did somebody say ... Pittsburgh??  Wuut wuut, PA IN THE HOUSE! I'm in the Harrisburg area, myself. Nice and central, not really too far from anything.  I'm up for camping, hotel'ing, even just meeting up someplace convenient-for-most and chatting over dinner.

Em hotep, Noof!

Welcome! As others have advised, just start talking. Netjer hears you and you'll hear Netjer if you're listening. Don't be surprised if you get a response. Some Names are louder than others, some are barely whispers on the edge of consciousness. (One in particular is fond of barging in on me if I'm applying makeup and demanding more eyeliner...) They have their own personalities and quirks and you'll figure them out soon enough.  :D
