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!


Great hula-hooping, Eowyn. Has Coco lost her affinity for lions? Is it cheetas now?? love
