I agree, beautiful post. It resonated with me, too, because it was a different experience for me this year, going with a new friend. I saw you from a distance but didn't run over to say hi since I had just seen you. Enjoy your new fleece.


Awesome post, my dear. We'll see each other again soon, I hope!


This post describes Rhinebeck so perfectly. One of your best for sure.


Beautiful. Sorry I missed seeing you however briefly but glad you had a great time. I did too.

Oh, how I have missed you.


I didn't go this year but lately, when I go to a festival for fun, I wander. One of my best festival memories was with you and it wasn't Rhinebeck, but Mass. That year, everyone was running around buying spindles. Trying them, buying them. As you'd buy another to add to your collection, you'd stick them into your cleavage, a gorgeous bouquet of spindles. Fun afternoon. Everyone gathered on the little hill across from Dave to spindle and hang.


It was so great to see and hug you yesterday, if only for a very brief minute. So much changes so quickly these days and seeing you is always like marking time and milestones.

Miss your face! And wish you or we lived closer.


So glad you went, and posted this. I miss reading you guys.

I love that you had this experience.


This is beautiful. My little group discovered this way of doing Rhinebeck about three years ago, and we've never been happier. When we get tired of the scene and the crowds after a few short hours, we go into the town, where it's all nice and quiet and give the locals some business. It's wonderful, and resulted this year in an awesome brown polka-dotted skirt and dress for me to wear whenever I'm in a twirly retro mood.
