Glastonbury….. Start

Glastonbury….. Where to start. My life has changed in oh so many ways!!! The music was great, saw a lot of bands that I wanted to see, but it was just the good weather, the relaxed nature and the vibe throughout the site that made it so special. Highlight was probably the first night, sat around the stone circle waiting for the sun to set. Everyone was smiling, people playing drums, the uk tribes converging on one arena. As the last trace of the sun slowly sank below the distant Somerset fields the pounding drums sounded as one, as did the cries and screams of a thousand voices. It was a mind-blowing experience. As the weekend progressed not only did my thoughts begin to change, but my view of reality and what it means to be alive changed. No-one discussed work, stock markets, plane crashes. There were no meetings, no politics, no logos. Just humans enjoying being free, doing as they wished for 72 hours. No buses to catch, no deadlines to meet. Confrontations rarely happened, people did what they wanted and everyone had their own space. It could have lasted a thousand days, a thousand years and it wouldn’t have been long enough….
