hey, where've ya been?


or should we say, where ya be?

well, I be here right now, but I be buzzing around the country for the past week (almost... don'tcha just love it when I long weekend is so much fun that it feels like a week?) laughing and singing and dancing and clapping hands...

amongst other things...

yes, it was the world famous Orange Blossom Music Festival...

those of you who've been around casa de candoor a while have been through this before, that is, no entries for a week... last time it was due to hurricanes, I think (nine days without power makes it tough to find an uplink), and suddenly when the winds died down and the power came back on almost a dozen entries were slipped into this space before most anyone noticed (and so maybe most were not read as not everybody goes back to catch up on missed entries)...

we have a similar situation again... this time it was caused mostly be a four day road trip that was preceeded by two days of preparations (besides regular work and life) and today has been rest-day... work is just a few hours away, so the massive catch up will not be happening tonight, but this small dent in the missing chunk of the space-time continuum shall be made...

the inital words that come to mind sort of summarizing the last week include: fantastic, wonderful, beautiful, bonding, fun, new friends, nature, outdoor camping, indoor camping, comfort, barn doors, dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, horses, sunshine, rain, wind, long flowing dresses in the wind and weather and dripping wet bodies and naked babies and laughter and stars and moon and sky and feathers and folk and rock and reggae and grundge and rave and bluegrass and covers and uncovers and discovers and there was music too (and sarcasm and teasing and giggles and passion for life and good feelings and energy and trees with leaves that made shapes that moved like animated characters with stories to tell on a starry starry night backdrop full with the moon and down below the sky show wandered wild furries nosing around in the curious way that only wild furries do and flowers in flowing hair and hair blowing in the wind and smiling faces and hugs and cuddles and hope and happiness and peace and love and understanding and...

have you walked into a barn and had an epiphany that you did not have to close the door?

we did...

ah, nothing like getting stoned in the woods, aye?

the characters in my head had a blissful time... and we all really wish you were there... it was the best weekend I've had this year so far (and thinking back, the first I've gotten out town and out of the usual routine, I think)... I was a little reluctant to head up alone because I was not sure how well I'd be remembered by guys I met six years ago, but it was instant friendliness and I was welcomed into the inner circle of their festival family like I'd always been there... I'll most likely be taking a working-fun role at their festivals for as long as I'm in Florida... this was the first year for this sort of festival-in-the-woods and there was much to learn even for seasoned veterans of festival-making (the beach and the downtown festivals have been successful for a few years)... I absorbed the atmosphere like a thirsty sponge (it's been so long since I've been around music-making I almost forget the feeling of being with my first love)...

I reconnect with Phil, promoter (president and founder of SSA, among other hats) and feel like friends with him and all the staff... Phil's #1 man Rodney and I hung out a lot (I remember now how much I miss all nighters with friends) and I think I found a new friend in Laura, the property owner (so I had access to comfort and showers and electricity and food storage if I wanted it)... they all asked for my email and number so hopefully they'll use it for good down the road...

I will catch up on details (from memory, since I hardly wrote a thing all weekend, maybe next time, since I could have brought my laptop after all) for the rest of this week and hopefully by the weekend we'll be back in RealTime... for the interested (and most highly appreciated) among you, these are some of my notes from the past few days (terse, but they lead to pockets of babble stored somewhere in my brain)...

write...

all in all, this was an energizing awakening for all the little and big spirits buried deep inside of be due to all the dumb stuff that's happened and convinced me to wrap myself up in words and practice the art of homebodiness... I can hardly believe I almost caved in and didn't go just out of habit or shyness or some unnecessary baggage that should have been dumped on the side of the road (or somewhere equally metaphorical) long ago...

next time, you've all gotta come J

we interrupt these seemingly mindless dots for a word from (or at least about our sponsor (hmmm, sponsor?... what's the opposite of sponsor?)... anyway, now, as ado-less as possible, the word for you or andrew)...
