I'm curious what the used car lot flags are for?
It was a beautiful night last night. Thank you John, Justin, Jim and crew!
[FONT=arial,helvetica][SIZE=-1]What are Tibetan Prayer Flags?
The Tibetan word for prayer flag is "Lung ta", meaning, "wind Horse". When wind blows (expressing the quality and nature of mind) the sacred prayer flag flaps in the breeze. [/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=arial,helvetica][SIZE=-1]The prayers contained on the flag are carried out to all beings as a blessing. Seeing the flag also has a practical benefit of reminding people to be mindful of the Dharma as they go about their business. When I see a prayer flag either motionless or flying in the breeze, I am reminded of the call to pray for the welfare of all beings, to work to bring about virtue, goodness, healing and happiness in the world around me.

[FONT=arial,helvetica][SIZE=-1] The traditional five colors represent the five Buddha families and five elements. Blue-space, White-water, Red-fire, Green-air & wind, Yellow-earth. [/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=arial,helvetica][SIZE=-1] The auspicious symbol images invoke the power and influence of the beings or symbols depicted. In the case of the 21 Taras, one is invoking the blessings of Tara in all of her expressions or manifestations. [/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=arial,helvetica][SIZE=-1] The prayer flags are made of cotton and/or polyester. The prayer is written in Tibetan and always express positive intentions for the happiness, enlightenment and protection of all beings. The expressive blessed quality of the flag rests mostly in the wood block print, which imparts the prayers and blessings. Everyone loves these flags since they are so lovely to display and express such a generous,heartfelt Loving-Kindness for all beings. [/SIZE][/FONT]

YouTube - MountainFilm On Tour at WaterColor, Florida
Did you see your face?
Wonderful as always! The final film was hysterical.
My only complaint would be the 'food and wine pavilion'. Chan's you apparently aimed low and then dropped the ball about 10 feet short. Please please please let WaterColor take over the concessions again next year.
Ditto. Too cool!
Yes, I saw my big ole head between 7-8 secs. You got meIt was great to see you, Jenny and Family, John R, Dia, scooterbug, Miss Kitty, Mr. SWGB, Murray B., and the rest of the SoWal family. I missed seeing Mrs. SoWal.com
I u guys and thank you Walton Outdoors for taking me along with you. This is the second year WO shared their tickets with me Next year I'm going to aim to do the whole weekend.
I am already anticipating next year's films.
Feed back for this year.
+Films-- Great as always!!
+New Screen and sound system-- fantastic!!
+Venue -- Beautiful as ever!
-Ticket prices-- St. Joe, please be kind, the people taken several economic hits lately. Better price will bring bigger numbers which will mean more money for you in the long run.
-Food--needs some help. --More checkout points, Round prices to include tax to even dollar (so all the servers are not waiting on the cashiers to count silver all night), Move condiments table to an adjacent area away from food purchase area, people are hungry at intermission as well as during the 2nd half of the films, IMO keep the food simple, limit packaging and use eco-friendly packaging (all the foam and plastic was sort of embarrassing after Bag It), most of all please remember that this is a film festival NOT a wine festival.
Some important topics were broached last night, and frankly I was a bit disappointed by the audience reaction. I guess pioneering filmmakers get used to the slings and arrows of scorn.
