Sunday I entered the tent for the musical offering: hammer dulcimer, guitar, and the musicians unexpectedly hilarious take on their musical career. Sitting down I wondered why I felt so happy, so comfortable, and crazy nostalgic.
Ah, it was Interlochen Arts Camp "deja-vu all over again". A beautiful outdoor venue, tented, talented musicians, and a wildly enthusiastic audience. An audience just willing to be: happy!
Not only did we clap, we danced, we played whatever found instrument we could. I clacked the freebie fan-handles! One dog was clever enough to bark on the beat!
At the break I wandered the venue's park garden now in it's Summer phase: "irrational exuberance". Impossible electric blue hydrangeas that fade to purple? A fountain to celebrate it all.
As I poked my way into the park's neighbor's yard; an invite was called out: come and join me!
Ok, I was convinced to return for the evening's performance.
Cramming in as many performances in the day as possible; that was Interlochen's key enjoyment now to be found again in Lewes.
