July sun stored in tapered orange cylinders

Robin shows off some mighty carrots in the community garden.


We had such a good festival at the Pred/Sword Amphitheatre last weekend. This year the festival was named MilesFest, because the sad anniversary was this past week and Miles was part of almost every festival we've had in Celo since the beginning (almost 20 years ago). Here's Emma with a newly-created toast-faced puppet. There was a lot more going on than I've got pictures of, but here are a few samples.

Jason Cade and Rob McMacken, a.k.a. Hog-Eyed Man.

Polly and Bob, onstage together again.

The Bob Early Jazz/Funk Bank tearing it up.

I don't have pictures of the play, because I was in the play, but this is what it looked like from stage when Margot's dance crew was doing the hustle as an offering to the toast gods.

Mitch and Bobby pumpin' the jam.

Jody and friends played live rock and roll to inspire live dancing (which is always best).

Late-night dancing with puppets.

Festive Parakeets

We're having a festival today at Jody's festival grounds. There will be children carrying cardboard parakeets and who-knows-what-else.

Another pretty view

No story here, just another pretty picture. This is from the road up to Clingman's Peak, just at the outskirts of Mt. Mitchell State Park.
