We had a wonderful All Night Dance Party this year tho’ some were not able to come, but others, who had been absent for a few years, were there. So things all balance out.
Here’s a lovely story from a guest at the party from 2008– the year my brother William died. Glad we could still have fun!
A NOTE FROM JAIME & JANELLE. ladybelle, i first went to quarry hill back in 2008 with my then-boyfriend (and best friend to this day!), MARTIN. he is a good friend of airon’s, and so one hot august morning, we all took off from dumbo, destined for the promise land. i couldn’t have dreamed up what i was about to live…. martin & i set up our tent of love on trevor’s front lawn, and it rained for days and days it seemed, and unfortunately we didn’t get to float down the river during the days, but hanging out in trev’s living room and meeting all the good flowers was exactly where we were supposed to be, the rain growing beautiful everlasting friendships, quenching the hill’s thirst for life, the hummingbirds spreading joy outside the window. there we all were, united by this place of magic, where the spirits still roam and the stars shine brighter, the FAMILY, the feeling of the revolution still present in every blade of grass, every petal, every leaf, every sweet pea pod. it forever changed my life, those days i spent on that hill, tucked away in nature, cleansing with the rain, dressed in a tie dyed tutu, feathers in my hair, love in my heart as vast as vermont. my twin sister- jaime, was back in canada at the time, which rarely happens- us being apart from each other. and so, she has heard my stories about the magic land, the people, the principles, the vegan pancakes for breakfast, and we have longed to be there ever since 2008! this is the year we will come, to the party, to celebrate life & truth & music & art & the highest purpose of living. i look so forward to seeing you all there, and i want you to know that almost daily i think about the beautiful existence of Quarry Hill. I am so grateful, and to your FATHER, Irving, bless him for creating himself and all of this. His vision and his life was such a gift to the universe, and i believe it continues to create a whole new world. THANK YOU. sending love to QH, always. love from canada, janelle (&jaime)
Very happy to hear you will come and love your story!
Thank you for your warm words of Irv. “all love through all infinity.” — Irving
