Game On!

Saturday, February 13th, 2010

The games have finally begun! The past few days have seemed a bit dreamlike as the countdown got closer and closer. But it really happened as yesterday brought us the opening ceremonies for the Olympic games in Vancouver.

What an interesting experience, full of diverse people in the midst of contrary experiences. After the torch was diverted from Commercial Drive I headed downtown to the art gallery square, a common meeting point for political action by the citizens. There were a lot more people there to protest the Olympics than I thought would show up. The original forecast was anywhere from 1000-1500 and I heard estimates for the turnout as high as 5000. This seems a little high to me based on my experience with Critical Mass and I would have estimated anywhere from 2500-3000 on the ground in front of the gallery.

Just returned from an incredible weekend with loads of beautiful people! Intention is a gathering of folks who get together to celebrate the start of the Gregorian new year and set a positive intention of community and creativity going forward. I’ve been wanting to go to for several years now.

I’ve had so many friends return with such a positive vibe and good words to say about the event but I’ve somehow managed to miss it every year until now.

So I spent the weekend engaging in workshops given by attendees and just plain dancing my ass off! Now I’m riding such an incredible but sublime high that I’m having to remind myself to remain calm and centred in the middle of it all.

But the best part is how I’m feeling like a deep sense of creativity has been activated inside. I’m really looking forward to the coming year and all of its joys and challenges.

Happy new year and ever after to you all!

Over a month!

My little blog is over a month old this week!

It’s been fun exploring the bounds of keeping a public journal…

what can I say… but won’t?
what can’t I say… but will?

One of the great things about my site is that it’s got me writing again. Writing is a great way to get the creative juices flowing and practice critical thinking.

Here’s to a good start and a long, fun future of!
