"Diversity is an Old Wooden Ship"

I just got back from the Diversity festival on Texada Island, now officially one of my favorite festival atmospheres for the small size, family atmosphere and the integration of the live performances.

The most inspiring thing for me has to be realizing what a gourmet feast life is. On Saturday night at the beach stage I connected with the light from a very particular star and realized that every little spot of open sky is serving up light, aged for millions of years, on a platter mindbogglingly vast. What a life’s work it would be to fully admire the sky, on any given night.

I have no way of verifying this, but one of my camp neighbors told me that Texada was a traditional pilgrimage point for elders and healers who were ready to pass on to the next life. Its well known that no one used to live on the islands, but its definitely interesting to acknowledge the powerful way-point that's there.

Thanks to everyone who made my experience incredible and enlightening. See you next year.

The title is a quote from Will Ferrell in Anchorman that was knit into one of the DJ sets on the Beach Stage. Good choice.

Art is Starry Night Surprise by Vincent van Gogh, who worked with the great question, "How can the majesty of the night sky best be captured in a painting?"
