Summer's End Fest is the name; locally sourced music and art is the game! Spend an afternoon with the creatives within our thriving arts community, including a silent disco with an insane lineup of Bellingham's finest DJs (including some Peace Portal alumni)!
A few weeks ago I was a time travelling sonic renegade from the future and went back in time @kendalcalling to build a secret compound in the woods to throw a weekend long party that changed the course of history. Each night since I have been dreaming of the next mission. @weareredstars remember the name. 🛰💥🔊🔥🕺🏻
This photograph sums up my first Beloved festival. What an honor to document such a beautiful, intentional & sacred event. Thank you for all the smiles, hugs, vulnerability & love. A truly transformative experience. Already looking forward to next year. Look out for the full Beloved festival gallery will be posting link in a few days!!
In the meantime you can follow Melissa Robin Photography on Facebook and Instagram @melissarobinphoto !
I am constantly blown away by the power of human gatherings.
We have a choice, either to gather for love, or to join to propagate division.
I am a lover, and the gatherings that I see happening, I believe, are going to heal the world.
I see people taking the time to allow for stories to be heard.
I see people reaching out their strength to support this growing movement, with compassion.
This is the real deal my friends.
Together we can heal these wounds of pain caused by physical abuse, substance abuse, religious abuse.
By taking the time to listen. By having a caring heart. By taking responsibility for our friends and family.
Together we can move mountains.
Okay but Third time around, outside lands is amazing as ever. I’m glad I got to spend my weekend with @silentw0lves having fun at a festival. We got to be in front row at @portugaltheman and that made my life. 💕 thank you for being my festival warrior with me and grabbing all the free wine and food from Verizon. Also, thanks Verizon and google for the vip hook up. 🤣

My lovely Soul Sister, Empress Jewels business partner (the amazing Miss Kerry Donohue) and I have decided to dis-continue our business partnership.
We are bringing focus into our individual projects and moving different directions with our craft... Kerry @artesana_paisana is pumping out her unique beaded caps and jewelry, and I am thrilled to move deeper into the leather craft!
In addition to crowns and head pieces, I am in development of a new line! I’m very excited to share soon!!!! Thus, I am taking back on the name of B.Love Designs, which was my business name prior to the partnership, and is a better fit for this new endeavor.
I resonate with the name, as I pour my creative energy and LOVE into my craft with intention to spread the LOVE and inspire others to B.LOVE! My new logo and brand design are in process... looking forward to revealing in the next couple weeks! ✨😁🙌🏽

Reflecting on what I said in my last post, I have even more clarity on my experiences of transcendence in connection with people.
We are only given one body, one life, one container for direct experience in this lifetime. It’s like making your way through the world having only one eyeball. If you’re paying attention, you can see clearly, but the world has no depth. And from this singular perspective, it can be difficult to navigate the landscape effectively. We trip, we stumble. We cannot perceive dimension. We lack information.
For me, every time I have the opportunity to listen to the stories and feelings of another, it’s like a gain another eye on the world. Each time I witness someone with a spirit of open curiosity and compassion rather than judgment, I learn what the perspective of another singular human being looks like, and another angle is added into my view of reality and truth.
The more people I connect with with an open heart and with the purpose of understanding, the more clarity I gain on universal truths — on the things that unite us rather than divide us.
The more people I connect with, the closer I get to witnessing Truth in its essence.
I want to continue with this work wherever I can.
Stay tuned. I’m making this happen. —
Ps, if you want to see all my 100 images from @pickathon , you can see them on my blog. I’m also adding them 1 at a time to my @humansofpdx Tumblr (link in that profile).
Throwback to @odysseygathering under that big beautiful sky.
Look at this precious baby poi-boi, flowin' his cares away under the warm embrace of that sweet UV. Look at that fond yet pensive gaze he casts a thousand miles off. I wonder what he's thinking about... Popsicles, probably, or maybe how Garfield started off looking like a fat old cat, but slowly evolved into a weird bipedal monstrosity with a pot belly? What's with that though, srsly.
