Watching the moon
come up w/ jack hardy can be an interesting experience.. All over the
ranch tonight, you can hear groups of people joined in the howling as
the full moon brings out some "different behaviors"
The moon came up over the mountain into a crystal clear sky. There was
still plenty of light in the sky.
Attending the festival with someone is a very different experience from
going it alone. That doesn't mean it's better or worse; it's just different.
This is the first night of the festival i've spent on my own this year.
I'm taking advantage of the additional open time i have to sit with old
friends... For the first time this year, i've been able to spend a little
time sitting and chatting with some of the camp calm regulars and strolling
into parts of the ranch i haven't been around yet this year.. As 11:30PM
passes, i can hear drums and bad (loud) voices coming from the direction
of the lower bathrooms. The tree frogs are chirping away, and the occasional
strolling sole comes down the path from chapel hill.
The ranch seems to be quieter this mid-week than last, and also quieter
then the same time last year. many of the campsites are empty, awaiting
the return of their energy on friday, or, if they're lucky, on thursday.
Coho and Nashville are quiet.
AT MIDNIGHT (20 MINUTES AWAY) oops sorry for the caps... typing in the
dark.. Jack hardy will be conducting a moon song gathering on chapel hill..
Unfortunately, Chapel hill was overbooked at midnight, so the moon songcircle
was held at camp coho.
Nice peaceful night wandering the ranch, sitting or standing in the middle
of the road, talking w/ friends, offering bread to strangers at they pass
by... Seeing Alan Rowoth for the first time this festival and having a
chance to sit a spell. He's only going to be here for 3 days this year.
All in all, just another peaceful day in paradise.. Remember, even a shitty
day in Kerrville is still better than 320 others you're going to have
