Just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who sent well wishes to Grandma via the Shambhala FB page on Thursday. It meant so much to her. 🙂 She posted this message on our FB wall:
“Dear Britz, thank you for what you post on the site of shambh. Can you imagine my surprise when i see that morning of my birthday. You bring me back in august whit my shambh family. Now i realize how much love we find on that festival. Say hello to all the people working whit you Specially a little wink to Nikki for all the nice thing she post on my family.

Thank you, Grandma, for being a constant inspiration of Shambhalove! over the past few years. You are truly an important part of the festival, and part of our unique Shambhala culture. Our very own Shambhalebrity!
Another thing I wanted to share today is a poem sent in by Kirk Ramdath that I thought was pretty cool.friday night at shambhala by Kirk Ramdath we dance under a canopy of stars on a cool august night in the forest a fairytale annotated by drops of bass that fall on our heads like rain until bodies are sweaty from so much sound and moving like a pulse to the music even the lights hanging in the trees are dancing with the leaves we dance together, you and i with a thousand bodies throwing down this is no slow dance dirty dubstep moves our limbs not with grace but groove and thrust the first time i have danced with you — the first chance i’ve had to see you dance after not too long the pumping bass takes second place to the mesmerising sight of you dancing like you are the moon and the music is but an ocean that follows the movement of your body across the sky i offer you water you drink and say thank you i say you are welcome but what i want to tell you is that the sun has no need to thank the day nor has the moon a need to thank the night and tonight you must be a child of the moon because you shimmer when you dance with a cosmic light that rules the night
