Our sweet 16th annual festival is rising right before our eyes, and these are krazi-bizidays as we still manage to manage classrooms, all things keCg Public Radio station and a sole Traditional Healing practice … we call this part tongue-in-cheek ..stresstival .. it is so very, very demanding.. all day all night … requiring sacrifice of time and resources .. we are all in..
…if we have done it all right ..the Blesstival follows .. the music and invocations and joy goes UP .. and the skies listen … and the blessing come raining down… into our waking reality and our new heavy sleep and reflective revelatory dreams …
Speaking of sleep, our sleep is bustling … just enough, not really restorative, but it’s that season .. and those weeks of ramping up .. loading out to Cerrito Vista. I awoke this am, with a dream running, showing me my own hands working the solution to a sign construction task I had not yet consciously worked out..nice !
Thank you Main stage Artists and Carnaval performers … Keepers of respective Culture and Arts .. worldOne and y’all do not have celebrity incomes… thank you for working within our volunteer, free setting, and artistic honoraria … Down Home reminds .. Real Musicicans Drive Tractors (too!) Steveland , Shakira , Prince , Lauren, Ceelo, Carlos .. y’all are welcomed any time .. though you’d have to work with us on the budget.
Alas, to our peril … the despair-depression-oppression-sexi-broody-vampire-penguin-antisocial-vanity-me-me-media- business seems to pay faaaar better in the short, brutish, ecocidal-spiricidal haul ..
Thank you All Volunteers.. you are keenly aware how much work is required.. . Knuckle scraping, huffing and puffing. Stay hydrated and don’t forget to dance… do not let a dance or a new-friend-moment slip by… the music and dance gods + goddesses will be well pleased to see you dance! Me Too ! WaTCHE ME NOW ! LOL !

Forward in One Imperfect yet Perfecting Love Galore ..
For those who I may have disappointed, or neglected in my passion to see this done, I apologize. please forgive me. To my family and friends, from whom I am too often absent, immersed, I ask for your understanding and forgiveness. If it’s not abundantly clear what motivates and drives me what have seen and see, I hope that time will GRACE and bear out the fruit of these particular ex-insperiences, works/offerings, and that you will feel proud. That said, time cannot be replaced, as it is a river. May we spend more time together loving and living and crying and laughing, on and in the River.
Let’s make a Festival .. Everbody worldOne ! … Smile and be Happy! …
Gracias a La Vida ! Giving Life Back to Life .. Give More than we take, and Watch the World ReMake !
