I just came back from Camp Meriweather, on the Oregon Coast, and the most fabulous way to end the summer: Pacific Fire Gathering. This year I choreographed and performed in a fire performance duet with Erika Ryn, and DJ'd the fire circle on Friday night. What's a "fire circle" you say? Well, it's a giant meadow demarcated with rope lights, filled with 5-30 fire spinners, with a stage and DJ at one end, and the beach at the other. During the day, the lodge and surroundings are filled with folks learning teaching and practicing flow...stuff. Of every kind. I can't wait for next year!
So many new memories, new friends, new family, new confidence, new-found respect for my inner voice, listening to my body's needs and wants at any given moment. Living in the moment - understanding that there is no way to possibly see or do it all, no phone, no internet, no sleep schedule, no "it's five o'clock somewhere" - is the most beautiful way to live.
Looks like I'll be going back to TTITD after all...
