Lot of Life To Live 10/12/12: LA Decom, Oysterfest, Highland Games & More

October 12, 2012

There’s a lot of life to live. And some weekends you need more than one life to live it!

This Saturday’s competing events in Ventura County and LA include LA Decompression (1pm to dawn), the Ventura Oysterfest at the Ventura State Beach (11-6pm), the Highland Games at Seaside Park (also Sunday), StoryFest (at the ESC from 9-3pm),  Leo Kotke at Libbey Bowl in Ojai as well as the Ojai Studio Artists self guided tour (also Sunday)…and I am sure I am forgetting a few things!

Starting Thursday, Burners from SoCal have been setting up for Saturday Oct. 13′s 10th Official Los Angeles Burning Man Decompression Arts and Music Festival featuring a large art installation created by the burner community “Seraphim: The Spirit of Unification” with four angels guarding a vortex. The installation was supposed to burn but because of fire hazards, the burn was cancelled. Of course, then it rained like crazy in LA but the fire was already cancelled.

Seraphim is a version of the Temple where on the back of the wings of each of the angels you can write your good byes for whatever or whoever you need to release. There are also empty boards on which to write your hopes and dreams, inspirations and aspirations, anything you need to express. The boards will be placed on the top of the Vortex. Seraphim will hold all of it safe until she burns. (I looked for photos but didn’t really see any with which to illustrate this post…too bad I’m not able to get down there!)

Even without the inaugural burn, the event has so much to offer there’s an app for it: LA Decompression 2012! and it will last until dawn this year. Located at Los Angeles State Historic Park 1245 N. Spring St Los Angeles, CA 90012 within walking distance of Union Station downtown, tickets are an affordable $20 1pm-7pm, $25 7pm-midnight, $30 midnight – 2am (no entry after 2am). All children 12 and under are free when accompanied by a parent or legal guardian

In addition to theme camps like my friend Merry Malice the Compost Queen’s Eco-Tea Salon, there will be several stages with entertainment. Unfortunately, I can’t bring my Art Predator’s Playhouse again this year so I won’t be seeing you there. But next year you will!
Remember to wear your Playa Finery!
