It’s Electric! (Forest!) ~ Emily Casey

Via on Jul 1, 2011

The venture from Colorado to Rothbury, Michagan is a trip longer than expected. Much of the 24 hour drive to the Electric Forest we were surrounded by magnifcant lightening— how fitting. The great bolts struck on each side of us, an amazing display of Mother Nature’s ability to infuse the air with the power of moving energy.

At some point as we moved from Colorado to Michigan we experienced beautiful wind farms generating a sustainable type of energy.

We made many a stops from gas, to food, to mindfully chosen reusable bowls— of which we filled with berries.

As our trusty Subaru coasted into the main entrance rays of light beamed down from the sky and up from the family of tents, RVs, hammocks, and general mass of community.

Soothing rain gifted us with much needed sleep while creating magical grounds seeped in squishy-ishy mud.

Looking forward to some cheesey love all over, and erupting from my being.
