ODE TO WHIRL-Y-GIG, Whirlygig Summer Celebration
June 24, 2019
Last Saturday it was a beautiful sunny day and it was Whirly weekend once again. Things were slightly different this time as some of my new Whirly friends invited me for a drink at the Rusty Bike in Mile End beforehand.
It was nice to have the opportunity to really get to know people and chat before the madness of the club. So, thanks to Louise, Melissa, Las and Geoff for being warm and friendly and welcoming me in, it meant a lot.
This got me thinking about the love and belonging I feel at Whirl-y-gig, you have made me so happy, its been truly life changing.
After an incredible night of love, togetherness and positivity at the Summer Celebration; here is my ODE TO WHIRL-Y-GIG, with the help of some quotes and poems.
(Most pictures are from this weekends Whirly but a few are from previous ones)
In the shadows of the dark forest
In the afternoon waning light
The faeries are a gathering
To celebrate the night
On the wind I can hear them singing
Like the tinkling of bells
As clear as silver raindrops
Gently falling on the dells
I long to see them dancing
Underneath the silver moon
So I sit among the shadows
And I offer them a tune
I heard them whisper in the trees
Laughter echoes in the glen
But they melt away like stardust
Far beyond all mortal ken
