Created to promote The Lost Disco Festival being held in Tisno, Croatia from August 17-21, our 1st mixtape comes from a full Manchester based (but worldwide known) DJ Paulette who explains fully what into her selections right here:

“I tried to telescope the best parts of a 24 hour bender into an hour mix.” I said …
‘Wahey! It’s a funk, soul, boogie, deep-disco-tech-house bonanza’ you said.

HOW TO KILL A DJ CHAPTER 7 – NOVEMBER 2015

By | blog, nightclubs | No Comments

Emotional journeys always take the longest. By December 2016 my world and the world itself has changed so much that you’d be forgiven (and subsequently so can I – be forgiven) for not recognising it from this year’s perspective. By comparison, the physical journey (practically unaided) from Ibiza to Manchester is nothing more than a simple stroll in Thatch Leach Park.

RUBY BRIDGES DAY – a day to celebrate courage and the game changing power of ordinary people doing extraordinary things

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

This is a copy of a post I found on Facebook today that I think is an important reflection for us all. Please read and share.

Today is Ruby Bridges Day, a day set aside to commemorate a brave little girl’s entry into an all-white school on November 14, 1960.

Image

As soon as Bridges entered the school, white parents pulled their own children out; all teachers refused to teach while a black child was enrolled. Only one person agreed to teach Ruby and that was Barbara Henry, from Boston, Massachusetts, and for over a year Mrs. Henry taught her alone, “as if she were teaching a whole class.” Every morning, as Bridges walked to school, one woman would threaten to poison her;[7] because of this, the U.S. Marshals dispatched by President Eisenhower, who were overseeing her safety, only allowed Ruby to eat food that she brought from home. Another woman at the school put a black baby doll in a wooden coffin and protested with it outside the school, a sight that Bridges said “scared me more than the nasty things people screamed at us.” At her mother’s suggestion, Bridges began to pray on the way to school, which she found provided protection from the comments yelled at her on the daily walks.

 

Now Ruby Bridges is a published author but more than this I think her success is a testament to bravery, courage, the power of prayer and determination and she is an inspiration to us all.

Spirit of Avalon

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

I am obsessed with horses – they are my spirit animal of sorts since I am a proud firehorse as my chinese astrological self. When I received this through @Soul Harmony on Demand’s blog I thought it was so beautiful that I immediately reblogged it. It embodies everything about this coming Year of The Horse and in fact, being a Horse and living the Horse life. Thanks to Roxi St Clair for being the source of the original post. I look forward to reading more posts from these two blogs.
