Are You Making a Splash?

Our Moondance Mermaid has taken a very well-deserved break and a hiatus from the festival, after 18+ years! She’ll be relaxing on some sunny shores, swimming with wild dolphins, and helping to save our precious coral reefs and marine environments. See you again, next time! Splash!



By Ilan Shamir

Stand tall and proud

Sink your roots deeply into the Earth 

Reflect the light of a greater source

Think long-term , Go out on a limb

Remember your place among all living beings 

Embrace with joy the changing seasons

For each yields its own abundance:

The Energy and Birth of Spring

The Growth and Contentment of Summer 

The Wisdom to let go of leaves in the Fall

The Rest and Quiet Renewal of Winter

Feel the wind and the sun 
, And delight in their presence 

Look up at the moon that shines down upon you 

And the mystery of the stars at night.

Seek nourishment from the good things in life 

Simple pleasures: Earth, fresh air, light

Be content with your natural beauty

Drink plenty of water 

Let your limbs sway and dance in the breezes

Be flexible 

Remember your roots

Enjoy the view!
