Glad you got to experience the Rainbow Gathering. But a couple of corrections, if you don't mind- most of the African drums you saw were not bongos but djembes. There were actually a lot of cameras present- but a polite understanding not to photograph people without their permission. And, to say there were 12,000 bohemian-types smoking weed and strumming guitars is misleading. Many of us have full-time (and some even professional) careers, and mortgages. Rainbow is simply a home away from home where we can practice "one love" with a like-minded community, and live in true equality with our extended "family" - where the Rainbow shitter diggers and pocket trash collectors are no less important than the professor or lawyer on their weekend social experiment.


Thanks for setting the record straight. A djembe is a lot different than a bongo. Guess we all have a lot to learn. Hope everyone enjoyed their stay in our neck of the woods!


Thanks again for your comments, Judith. You might enjoy our local paper's closing editorial on this year's Rainbow Gathering at http://www.timesobserver.com/page/content.detail/id/532807.html?nav=5008

I found parts of it quite humorous. Although the newspaper has quite a reputation as being far right-wing, there are at least a couple of people on the staff that are more hip than you might expect.

This is the first time I heard about a "Rainbow Gathering". Well, I love the events and all your activities. Enjoy the fun!
