the living is easy
Finally, it's summer. Hot, hazy, humid. Just in time for the back-to-school push.
I celebrated this past weekend with a music festival. Outdoors + Josh Ritter = swoooooon. The first ever MASS MoCA music festival was really quite nice. Great food (and totally reasonably priced, to boot) and local BBC beer on tap. Carleen and I found a spot on the grass and spread out a blanket. The mill architecture was brilliantly lit. When Josh came on to close out the fest, we abandoned the blanket and parked ourselves front-and-center. The only disappointment? He didn't do "Kathleen." Boo to that. (Oh, and for Carleen, it was spotting the wedding ring on his hand.) But all in all, a lovely way to spend a summer Saturday.
