Remember too that last years may pole was forked into 2 points at the top....very eerie.
It was so great to see someone experience Beltane for the first time. I know last year was just as magical for me. It truly is a recharge for me, creatively, spiritually and physically. I was told by someone last year that you get something different every year. I can see it now. This year was just as beautiful, strange, carefree, emotional, relaxing, exhausting, scary, stupid, and profound as last year but in a completely different way.
The party Friday was without a doubt magic. It reminded me why I do what I do. After feeling really frustrated about certain things in my life and here in NYC, I had the chance to feel that satisfaction that only comes from a pure creative collaboration and synergy. I was reminded on Fri of how psychically connected I am to the close tribe I have surrounded myself with. I had not had a chance to really speak with Sammy or Justin about how we were going to start the party, I was told a few things by Hush and then the next thing I knew we were beginning. Everyone dropped some pez entered the pavilion and sat on the floor. I just let the connection take over. I had changed the video on instinct. The opening of the party was perfect. Justin spoke from his soul. Sammy started the audio and I just flicked the projector switch purely on feeling and there was *BOB* in slow motion guiding all around to the beginning of their trip as the words "Welcome to the pleasuredome" echoed through the woods. People were mesmerized. Sammy was never so on as he was that night , I think it is the moment he found something . It was a marvel to see. But that's what happens at Short Mountain.
