My first Earth Dance was in 2001, here for You is a short story of my experience.
In the fall of 2001, I traveled alone to Vancouver by plane to back pack around the lower mainland for a couple of weeks between seasonal jobs. I stuck out like a sore thumb in the Vancouver landscape back then.
Blue hair that resembled a spilled bucket of paint, steel toed safety boots for… Safety, and a huge bright yellow backpack got me stares from well meaning Italian mothers and strange “bleu” filled cat calls from the ‘gentlemen’ that populated the Cafés sipping coffee under rainy awnings. I was feeling more than a little lost in the strange to me city of Vancouver. I had trapsed through the needle exchange line of East Hastings on my way from Downtown to Commercial Drive, not knowing any better. Eye opening for a prairie girl.
Found myself waiting on Commercial Drive to meet up with an old Edmonton room mate Elisha (Leash Glass), for late night sushi; back then you could get nigirizushi for a $1 if you arrived at the right time! We ate (alot) and also ran into a friend of hers, Sobey Wing (DJ Sobey One) invited me to Earth Dance happening the next day. That Saturday the clouds broke, Sunshine sparkled down, music thrummed a beautiful beat in the woods and waves as we danced a stunningly humbling human made Spiral on the edge of Canada in time with Our brothers and sisters around the world.
