Once a year my family takes a three day break from reality and attends Pennsylvania’s tiny little version of Woodstock.  From August 15th to the 17th we will be camping out at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, listening to music and ignoring the rest of the world.  The mood this year is less joyous, more subdued.  People are shorter with each There was also more room to lay down our tent – meaning less poeple could afford to come out this year.  Still, I look forward to a musical break, much like Sarchasm’s stint at Lollapalloza.  By the way, we’re not immune to the crisis in Georgia or Bush’s obviously political appearance at the Olympics, but no one wants to talk about it.  I’ll return to reality soon.  As always, here’s a taste of what we’ll be listening to:

Janis Ian

Hoots and Hellmouth

Steve Earle

I am not perfect. I do my best to practice what I preach, but I am human. My mantra is, "DO NO HARM". I may not always succeed, but I will always try. My goal is to be a better person today than I was yesterday.
