Tonight I went to the White House. St. Kilda. Dating back to 1856, this majestic building on Princes Street houses Small Giants. Small Giants is a family. Founded in 2007, their aim is to create, support, nurture and empower businesses that are shifting us to a more socially equitable and environmentally sustainable world. They're all for those who change the world. One of those world changers is Dumbo Feather, the magazine celebrating extraordinary people and extraordinary ideas. Since 2004, Dumbo Feather has been having conversations with people who are passionate about what they do. And tonight they celebrated their 32nd issue and their success in the kickstarter campaign to raise enough money to go digital and launch an ipad app. 

Approaching the White House, the strains of gypsy music could be heard. I entered the gate and there was magic in the air. Gypsy music, fairy lights, braziers, wine, licorice allsorts, the possibility of toasting marshmallows over the aforementioned braziers. And lots of creative, interesting, extraordinary people. I loved it. I danced a little. If only on the inside.
