 At rehearsal on Tuesday (my beloved Tuesday Night Music Club) I had one of those rare moments when I wasn't making the music, it was making me. It felt like the music was moving through me of its own volition, rising up from the earth, into my feet, through my body and out the top of my head. It made the hair stand up on the back of my arms. 

I had a similar moment when I recorded In the Pines and now that moment is immortalized. It may still be echoing in cyberspace long after I'm gone.

We caught lightning in a bottle.

What an amazing journey.

The Photos

I'm no photographer and always rely on Sequoia to take pictures of the camp out. Then I get to bitch at him about who he missed: "What??? No pictures of Manda & her friends? Only one photo of Ruthe?"  Yeah, it's dysfunctional, but it works for us. Anyway, I do apologize to any campers not represented here.  Feel free to send photos and I'll gladly post.

Incidentally, Sequoia tore his meniscus playing disc golf this year. He had arthroscopic surgery yesterday.  He's healing nicely and should make a full recovery, but you should have heard me bitching about that.  "What do you think you are??? 17 years old???"
