As the night progressed. We just sort of wandered around aimlessly. So happy to have rubber roots for sloshing around in. Got to play drums a wee bit with some other great Katz. Wish I could remember names, but everyone is so friendly and they pile up quick! Friday Night was already shaped into a fantastic evening! Yet, everyone I spoke to said..... "Just wait for Saturday".
My feet had enough for a bit and needed rest. Trying to warm up the freezing ground beneath our tent was not so much fun, but we have the solution for next year!...... Hammocks!!!!! Wonder why in all these years of camping, I've never heard much about them. They're not really embraced as it should for a more suitable way of sleeping in the chill. Harvest has opened our eyes to so many inspirational ways.
Saturday Morning Arrives! Bust out the tent to see a beautiful hazy morning. Thought it was supposed to rain, according weather reports. With patches of blue sky and my great distrust for what news says though. I think everyone collectively focusing on the weather made it perfect!
Music starts to turn up as the early evening rolls in. Kim and I didn't have much clue about who was playing when or where because we don't have "smrt" phones and no time slots we're posted anywhere we had looked. I'm sure they we're around somewhere and we could have asked. It was fun keeping everything sort of a surprise though! Only added to the mysticism. Just wish I had known more about the live stage!!!! Next year though.
Not a whole lot can be said to really do Saturday full justice. The sky was perfectly clear and I've never seen the stars so bright. Northern Lights flickering beams of green and purple into the night. AMAZING Art of all kinds, everywhere you go. Everyone in awesome costumes.... which I will be too next time!
WOW!!!! So there it was and it all felt like a really sweet dream. Many examples of positive energy coming together as Community and working towards making sure everyone is having a great and safe time. Karma was all around us in ways you just had to experience for belief. Some people might even ask... how is this music festival different from any other?.... Simple! How I see it...Harvest does not subscribe to any of the big commercialization that a lot of major events do. Keeping focused on those of us who appreciate more than that. Independent, like minded People who want to work together towards building stronger and deeper connection with this giant puzzle we're all a piece of.
Of course Life is not always a party full of lazers and Northern Lights.... but! principles of Love & Community stay the same. How we all play our parts to strengthen them beyond the forced perceptions of what often misleads our paths.
Sunday Morning was probably my favourite part of the weekend. We we're so busy running back and forth! My legs felt like 1000lb spaghetti noodles. Resting on a hill outside the pyramid was exactly what was in order. It was so chill.... didn't snap many pics, but had a chance to rock a quick doodle.... it didn't turn out that well. So I won't post it, hahaha.
Last! but, surely not least.... although I wish it didn't have to be. The tour back! We still received lots of beautiful scenery to perfectly cap off an amazing weekend. With windows down and tunes up! We took off into the sunset and started planning already for next year!!!!!!!!!
Of course! Most importantly.......... a HUGE Big Ups goes out to Everyone that pulls this fantastic event together. From top to bottom, everything seemed to run so smooth :)
Massive shouts to all I had the pleasure of meeting! Smiles everywhere was much needed therapy :)
Especially for reading and I hope you enjoyed my blabby blog, haha. Very moved by this festival that I'm now proud to call tradition and needed to share the photos.
Much Love Harvest Family
