Midsummer’s Dream

The first thing I saw upon stepping out of the car was Yoda hanging off this guy. DSC_2482

I knew immediately that the night was going to be awesome.

Midsummer’s Dream was surreal. I was blown away by the creativity and high energy directed into one of the best art festivals Prince George has ever seen.

The afternoon started with free workshops: live sketch of a nude model, gorgeous silk belly dancing, hula-hooping gypsies and break dancing gurus.

Everybody was hugging, laughing, dancing like no tomorrow.

The yogi in me adored the peace-lovin’ vibe paired with wild, sexy beats.

… And the decor was unreal.

Midsummer’s Dream is the kind of festival where you feel an instant camaraderie with everyone you see, where you smile at strangers for no particular reason and start spontaneous hula-hoop dance-offs.

I won, for the record. ;)

There were artists tucked across open grounds, settling into nooks and crannies to create.

And don’t even get me started on the music…

The beat was contagious. 

I shook and shimmied all sunset long. It was impossible not to dance!

The scent of carefree youth soaked into the night. The crowds were crazy and blissfully free.

This was a dream, a very good dream.

Gratitude is the key to happiness.

I am thankful for who I am; for what I have seen, felt, and loved. It’s easy to lose ourselves amidst the chaos of life. Through Dear Universe posts, I remind myself to take time every day to slow down, appreciate, and enjoy the beauty of each moment.

I post often on Facebook here and here, and Twitter as well. Do join in the conversation!

All my love, joy & happy thoughts to you! <3

Beauty lies in a spirit come alive, in the way light

cascades out our eyes

and things begin to grow.

Things like heart, art and soul.

What is more beautiful than a girl who feeds her spirit first?

For a full spirit can’t hide;

it pours out of souls the way

rainbows pour out of the grey.

So inhale in the fire of desire.

Let it fuel you,

feed you,

free you.
