How quickly this summer went by! Though it didn’t necessarily feel that way in 100+ day after day, did it?
This weekend’s Oktoberfest marked the last major outdoor festival for 2007 – and the last one where friends and I were doing readings together. We had a great time, though it did get a bit hot. I can remember September festivals where downright cold was the order of the day. Last week’s Celtic Festival down on the river made me glad I had on heavy renaissance garb, for instance.
So the beautiful outdoor readings under the trees are done. Except perhaps on my patio – maybe we’ll be able to extend that season a bit longer!
