I was incredibly honored to perform as Madame Beespeaker at the Colony Farm Midsummer Fête on Saturday. I was in a tent beside the Honey Bee Centre folks who had a display with a visible hive and free honey sticks for the kids.
I had lots of kids and adults drop in to chat and create messages for the bees. Whenever I took a breather and stepped outside the tent, I saw eagles, hawks, and herons flying overhead.
The tent was decorated with beautiful prayer flags made with designs by Tamara Unroe. The event was a pleasure to be a part of and I hope Marina Szijarto (with Public Dreams) has the opportunity to create the event again next year.
