The family and I went to the Los Angeles Worldfest today in Van Nuys. There was a lot of vegan food, animal rescues, clothing, music, and spiritual enlightenment information available. I’m not hardcore into all of that stuff but it was good to get some information on it. I’ve been preparing myself to go vegetarian for some time now but haven’t quite been able to make a full transition yet. I’ve been eating more and more meat free meals, but there are just some things I’m not quite mentally ready to let go. I would consider myself to be spiritual in a nature sense, but not in an organized-go-somewhere-to-practice-and-learn sense. There was a huge solar array there that was powering the stage and bands that were playing.
The one thing I was surprised about though, is that we left with a bunch of pamphlets, stickers, and general paper stuff. Makes me wonder if there’s a better way to give out take-home information. One place I ate at – A Taste Of Life – had coupons available but they made them about twice the size of a fortune cookie fortune. At least they were trying to be conscious of waste.
I wish there was a Worldfest every weekend – I’d love to go more often. It was a lot of fun and pretty educational.
