  1. Helen. I met you at Rainbow. Up at the Sunset stage on Sunday night. The psytrance sets. My names is Michael. We had a chat. You were amazing. You later came back to my friend and I. I just wanted to say how important I think your work is. The media tried to highlight the couple of bad things at the festival but forgot to mention all the wonderful things that happened. You being one of them. Very inspiring. I want to wish you all the best with your trade. My boys and I just loved it. Take care on your journey. Xxx

    1. Hey Michael! Thanks for getting in contact! It was so lovely to talk to you, I really enjoyed the conversation. Glad to hear you had a great festival and remembered the good times. They can never take that from us! I hope you are well, and I’ll see you again somewhere. x
