What a festival! This was my first ever Cornerstone and I spent it as a Staff person... which was awesome. We were a signed to help out at the Asylum Tent, which is a safe haven for subculture folks. Many of our friends including Mo, Ceciley, and Leper hang out/work at that tent so it was awesome. We also camped behind the tent. I am sooo thankful I brought my bike, "Meg", as she helped me get around the fest much faster. Thus I was able to see and do more on my breaks.
I was exposed to so many bands but the three that stood out the most were Leper, Crossing, and Men As Trees Walking. Yes, I know that is a strange mix.
But I think my favorite part was the rain coming... For one it cooled everything off. Secondly, it ment I could do more. Thirdly, it ment so many went mud bathing and mud sliding. LOL. That was a blast. I just wish I had time to do the mud sliding. Maybe another time.
'Tis a gray misty morn, and I am on the Road again! I am heading out this morning from Chicago to St. Louis, to Colubmia, MO, and then to Kansas City. From Kansas City, it will be on to Wichita via a ride with my Dad. I got a front top row seat on the Megabus so I have windows on three sides. All I have with me this journey is my carry on and purse (the green army bag).
'Tis so hard to leave Robby behind, even just for a week. The strange whispers of the wind are like the sound of my heart crying as the wheels of the Megabus carry me farther and farther from my love. Yet the green of the grass and the trees, both so long unseen, bring comfort to my heart. Journey onward!
