like to thank everyone who joined the celebration and who contributed their
unique frequencies to the event. Selina, Michelle, Emanar, and Heiko put
in a great deal of sweat creating a luxurious 'Arabian Nights' ambience
while Antares spent nearly three weeks compiling 12 hours of highly eclectic
dance music (everything from early Beatles to techno-rave, interspersed
with lots of sexy Afro-Cuban!). Robin loaned us his funky-chunky sound
system which got everyone twitching; and the 'faery lights' looked absolutely
magickal as dusk fell - but, interestingly, as midnight approached, a gentle
drizzle extinguished every single kerosene lamp. We were compelled to acknowledge
the beauty and power of Darkness!
Moon and cloudy skies made 31st December 2002 one of the darkest nights
within memory: we felt it as an opportunity to reintegrate our shadow selves
and transmute them into the playful creativity and enthusiasm of our liberated
inner child. Quite appropriate to the Activation of the Pleiadian Gateway
occurring at this time, bringing in the recognition that our starry kids
are here to guide us, and not vice versa!
the all-pervading darkness of the night and the damp air precluded outdoor
frolicks and dancing under the stars, the Revel
the dormant party spirit of many guests who confessed later that they hadn't
let their hair down and boogied for a very long time. And it also brought
together many long-scattered members of our Soul Family, some of whom stayed
up yakking till dawn!
1st and 2nd were perfect river days and those who stayed on spent the entire
time lounging on the rocks and chilling out in the
waters of the well-named Chiling River. Long-lost and newfound friends
spontaneously turned up to revel with us. A lot of video footage of the
Revel was taped (by Geoff Millichamp and Raj) but as I have yet to
see any of it, you'll have to be content with a selection of digital portraits
from the Revel.
