FOLKLIFE FESTIVAL!







My first Folklife Festival was in 2001, harp-playing with Bens & Laurel, orange poppies in their hair! Eowyn and Coco have been going all their lives, and this year we had a wonderful time, Eowyn entertaining the crowd with her hula hoop, Coco prowling as a cheetah, us all dancing in the icecold fountain, bumping into our lovely friends the Oglesbys, eating faerie floss, seeing vestiges of my English childhood (E and C and B's first time!) Punch and Judy, laughing, picnicking on bluegrass hill, dancing to June Madrona, making friends with everybody on the bus, and creating gargantuan bubbles!!!! Here's to Folklife!
