Fly Algaric and Sickener Mushrooms found in the woods at the WHispering Pines
Freslhy back from 6 lovely days at Music in the pInes for my fourth time showing at this fest, my second time attending and first time manning the Art Gallery!! It was lovely as always this Fest Family is so beautiful with it's tea garden full of wild Fairies and beautiful fires by the main stage. The wide diversity of Music to appeal to all tastes is always impressive too, and one can never go wrong with drumming and dancing around a fire til the birds start to sing and the sun comes up. It was so nice to reconnect with Fest goers from the past and to meet new ones as well. I am always so impressed at how The festival organizers and Volunteer Fest crew make this beautiful gatheing of Friends, family and like minded souls happen through dedication and love each year.

This year was beautiful in that there were a number of ceremonies and blessings done by people representing a besutifully diverse set of different Spiritual paths and backgrounds. It was a blessing to be present for this and I was deeply touched to have been able to participate in these ceremonies and to see the beautiful interworking, respect, love and co-operation between different paths.

And of course who could forget the music. Above is a sketch of Naked Sky one of the many bands who entertained the fest Family at the Pines over the course of the past week. Many thanks to all who sang, danced, and worked hard to make this fest the sucess it was. It's always fantastic to be back on the land at the Whispering Pines even more so while Music in the Pines is happening there. ( I had such a great time I forgot to take any photos! The above sketches are my visual record of this.)
