      Hey #ishiFEST! Ithought I’d leave a note here as well as Facebook. #Community means hearing about events such as Green Fest through people like you. It’s about being connected to people who share a similar passion and find a common purpose. One towards which each member gives of oneself wholeheartedly. Community is about love and intention beyond any identifiable boundary or border and taking the time to see the beauty and the value in everything around you; and having the added joy of sharing such an experience with a total stranger.
