Each year we make a meaningful and cooperative descision when choosing the symbol that will be attached to our Kickapoo Country Fair logo. This year we have selected the dragonfly. Dragonfly symbolism crosses and combines with that of the butterfly and change. The dragonfly symbolizes going past self-created illusions that limit our growing and changing. Dragonflies are a symbol of the sense of self that comes with maturity.
They are fantastic flyers, darting like light, twisting, turning, changing direction, even going backwards as the need arises. They are inhabitants of two realms - starting with water, and moving to the air with maturity, but staying close to water. Some people who have the dragonfly as their totem have had emotional and passionate early years, but as they get older they achieve balance with mental clarity and control. They gain an expression of the emotional and mental together.
Dragonflies are old and adaptive insects, and are most powerful in the summer under the effects of warmth and sunlight. Their colors are a result of reflecting and refracting the power of light. As a result, they are associated with color magic, illusion in causing others only to see what you wish, and other mysticism.
The are often represented in Japanese paintings, representing new light and joy. To some Native Americans they are the souls of the dead. Faerie stories say that they used to be real dragons.
Dragonflies are reminders that we are light and can reflect the light in powerful ways if we choose to do so. "Let there be light" is the divine prompting to use the creative imagination as a force within your life. They help you to see through your illusions and allow your own light to shine in a new vision.

"Angelic vocals. Flawless Guitars"--Independent Songwriter
“Patchouli offers a wonderfully vibrant, uplifting set of songs that despite the acoustic instrumentation has an electric quality. The band creates an elaborate web of acoustic textures laced with compassionate, thought provoking lyrics and sentiments, brotherly love, racial tolerance and ecological issues.” -- Relix Magazine

"While often compared to such luminaries as Sarah McLachlan, Joni Mitchell and Natalie Merchant Julie Patchouli is an original sound and worthy of her own notoriety" --The Victory Review - SeattleMore info available at:
