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.

PS. Gratitude to lovely Carolyn for inviting me and to the org comm for a superb job done. x

Dear Universe:

for the high, high heights we strive to reach,


for soul songs, kindred spirits and serendipitous days,


for those who smile despite their circumstances,


Thank you.


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

Spirit | Destiny



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.

Strength | Allowah

Be gentle in strength and meek in power, for even the mighty iron rusts. But be fearless in pain and joyous in death, for the grandfather oak grows out of withered leaves. Take comfort in the dance of the cosmos, for what is yours today will be gone tomorrow: this is life. So delight in the riches of the universe, and then let all go to bless another soul.




Beauty | Talia

Do you hear the ocean, the ocean within you? Do you hear the songs of the wind, the waves?

They sing of our freedom, of mischievous mermaids, of little girls who believe in happily ever after. They sing of emerald empires, of dreams that come true when we surrender ourselves to all that is good. They are always singing, soul-singing. My darling, do you hear?

I dare you to listen, I dare you to sing along. I dare you to dive, deep down, into your own ocean. I dare you to sing your own song.
