PAX East is a beautiful event, and 99% of that is because of the people.
The show is filled with humans taking a nonjudgmental look at who they wish they were, who they really are, and perhaps most importantly, at others who are doing the same. That's the kind of thing a lot of people pay thousands of dollars for in group therapy. At PAX, it's the cultural norm. Thousands of people all sharing sides of themselves that they'd be too afraid to reveal to anyone at home, work, school, or just about anywhere else.
I wish the whole world was like PAX. If it were up to me, we would all channel that PAX-feeling the kinship, acceptance, and genuine interest in each other, and spread it everywhere we went. We would all revel in that spirit of fun, experimentation, and artistic expression for everyday of our natural lives. I would adore that.
That would be adorable.
