Still with the ten year photo lapse (swipe right) I know this feeling.
The April acceleration into new things,
illuminated by spring's extra light.
Its sharp shadows and how it spotlights the dusty sleepy corners.
Encouraged to set things in motion,
I still can recall the moment of great revelation ten years ago.
I had to teach and share, put into words and action, the magic of the microbial.
Like a rabbit in the headlights, I felt the divine, the supernatural nature of the revelation.
A hugely intuitive and sudden moment of clarity beyond anything I had known in my ramble of a life. Felt like a proper April Fools at the time.
I completely understood these invisible friends I had bumped into along the way.
They lit me up. They turned me on.
They turned everything around.
I still think they will save us, they are the wayshowers but that is another post for another day.
Today I celebrate.
Because it is April ten years ago that I knew I had to start The Cultured Club.
I had no idea why I called it so.
But gathering people to share the wisdom was the idea.
Culture broadens out beyond just these little invisible things that inspire such transformation.
Culture offers more to discuss, more to ponder as we see how it shapes us, changes us, defines us.
That, and I am also tickled by its more creative potential in the arts, beliefs, values, habits, customs. Deep stuff.
Now here we are, still so deeply and intuitively loyal to the CULTURES.
Oh how they have changed me.
Oh how they have directed my path with great curiosity, revelation and insight.
Oh how they have worked wonders in my gut, changed my mind, altered my perception, invoked such happiness, instilled great balance and had my best interests at heart.
Today I celebrate this decade, which has been a joy of discovery, filled with many amazing people who have offered stage, opportunity, connection and similar alchemy.
Today I celebrate as new things set in motion.
The little baby that was The Cultured Club has only undergone a self-fulfilling prophecy.
It is now @themulticulturedclub
