Tiburon Art Festival
Feng Shui Ceremony
What's really happening with these energetic activities is very interesting. A lot of the time you can't tell in the moment what's going on. You only get it as the day moves along and you see its progression over time.
This day's presentation wasn't as bold as the previous day's. It seemed incomplete. This incompleteness made it more inviting. So people interacted with it. Everyone's participation built up the ceremony as the day went on. It was truly a community event.
Our ceremony started out humbly and built its way to a complex and refined crescendo. I wanted our display to convey a sense of being an extension of our monthly feng shui window display...

Passions swelled as Heather, shown here, chose to place the watercolor supply table smack in the middle of the ceremony's Sun Gua at an evil, choking angle...
