Tell Your LIB Story: Melanie Perez LIB 2010
Posted by: Lewey Knox
Oh LIB, such a magical experience! I did not plan on going to this festival due to financial obligations but I asked the universe to help get me there and the universe provided! It was less than a month after my best friend passed away, and my other best friends birthday was happening this weekend. This festival, with all it’s magic, provided the most healing weekend for the both of us as we danced and played in our friends honor. We felt her spirit present with us during every joyful moment. We left uplifted. I am thankful beyond words.
More than this, LIB was where my lover and I declared our love to each other. We had just met a couple months before and the first night of this festival was a night of fireworks for the both of us. He did not have a ticket either, but we both got what we asked for and so much more. One night, walking around hand in hand, feeling my best friends spirit walking with us I realized I have never been so magically in love with anyone in all my life! I turned to him and said “I can’t hold this love back any longer, you’re everything I’ve loved and lost, and I’m sorry if this is too soon but I love you and I want to spend my life with you.” He expressed that he felt the exact same way! What a blessing! What magic! The beauty, love, and magic that LIB embodies provided us all with the opportunity to celebrate our love with the many beautiful souls that attended. LIB allowed us to laugh and cry, love, dance, embrace, and heal and uplift our spirits. I left this festival with hope, with an understanding of the importance of celebrating life, with an empowering ability to freely express myself, and with the yearning to bring these gifts, these many blessings, into the world. This year, my love (now my fiance) and I aee hoping to go for our birthdays. we are getting married this year! what a great birthday present it would be to return to where our love truly blossomed. I cannot wait to return and celebrate with many more friends. I am grateful for experiences like these and for events that bring so many wonderful loving energies together. Thank you for the open eyes and open heart, and for a safe environment to express myself in.
