LEAF was lovely. The weather stayed pretty darn nice considering the snowy peaks in the distance and looming storms nearby. On top of all that, dozens of children, and one insane "adult," were zip-lining right into the lake. You can see that people were bundled due to the new temperatures that come with the cooling of a huge mass. And then kids come wailing overhead, half-clothed, and drag into the water, often not letting out anymore yelps and laughter after that...it must have been chilly.
Alright, the Cowboy Junkies rock, Zap Mama was uber-sexy and powerful, AD put it on like they have before, but I was the most impressed, moved, and tickled by a band called River Gueguerian Project, led by none other than River himself. He is a master percussionist and multi-instrumentalist and his stage presence was smooth, relaxed, and practically healing. He played with a didgeridoo dude, some sweeeet female vocals, an oud player and others, which added up to an amazing trance dance party. And the next day he played with a classical Spanish guitarist that was also outta this world. Check him out below, loves.
Thanks to Rob R., Mr. Mystical Crystal and recent B'day boy, for inviting me along to help slang jewelry and rocks that are way cooler than gravel. We came up with a few good ideas to make the biz better, kids happier (hence parents as well), and Rob less smelly...not really. 'Twas a fun and educational time (did you know that some sea creatures actually have bones made of aragonite, which, in crystal form, is a really neat exploding star-like crystal formation? Cooooool...)
Robbie, man of crystals, kept warm with fleece...
Browsers, browsers, browsers...will they be buyers? Will I get paid?
In other news, our last ultimate frisbee game is tonight...due to the time change coming up on Halloween. Get out you bum(s).
