I headed to Silverado, CA for Memorial Weekend to Lightning In A Bottle Festival. It was a gathering of the kindest people I have ever met. When was the last time you were somewhere with thousands of people and never heard one negative word. Every smile is returned with an even bigger smile. It is a cleansing from the materialistic LA environment to a simpler time. There are sound stages playing music and dancing at all hours of the day or night. There is yoga and lectures up on the hill for those who need a break. We sat in the grass and ate delicious food made by the local vendors. Lightning is the largest Green festival in the U.S. Every trash site has compost, recycle and landfill bins, and someone to help you decide, if you aren’t sure. People are free, happy and carry a piece of this weekend with them for a long time after. Special Thanks to The Do Lab for making it all possible. Everyone associated with them was stellar!
