I have just returned home from my week at Solstice and am filled with so much emotion!!! Wow!!! I have attended this gathering for 9 years in a row now... This was Bean's 5th! It gets me every time, but this one has left me feeling so much!! Not since my very first have I had such a strong emotional impact... The community, the art, the music, the food, the crews, the family, the acceptance, the land, the water, the fireflies.... All these things and their unexplainable combined connection make this a week of growth like no other.
Thank you so much to each and every being who come together to make this event possible. Every layer! From the soil organisms up to the spirits who gather with us!!! Thank you!!!! 😘💖✨🌿🌱🌲🌳💃🎶 This is just a small collection of the amazing moments I've captured in photo, and an even smaller portion of the amazing moments that were had that could never be captured, but will always be with me!!! 💚💓💗 #beantheherbalist made some great new buddies and taught them about plants... Which to eat, like the red clover! And which to only play with but NOT eat, like the buttercups, who make yer nose yellow with pollen, but are toxic to consume. I love seeing them spread their wings and soar in new situations as they grow each year. What a blessing!! 😍
I will be settling back in here and starting back up at the Florenceville-Bristol Outdoor Summer Market each week now too!!! Happy to be home. Look for my post about rooting back in, soon!
