"Just be who you are, calm and clear and bright." - Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah

Falcon Ridge Folk Festival



I spent the first weekend of August camping, volunteering, and listening to terrific live music at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival near Hillsdale, NY. My friend Miranda has been going nearly every summer since she was (literally) in diapers, and I’m so happy she convinced me to come along!



Ben and Miranda giving me drawings.


Miranda plays one of her original songs for her dad, Aldon.



We had two lovely swims at a nearby watering hole.



Almost finished with the Rebecca Ringquist embroidery Anne gave me in 2012…




Gorgeous cigar-box banjos (etc.) from Florida-based Earthwares.



Chillin’ at the Workshop Stage.



I’m always so impressed with people who can walk on stilts!


My favorite musical “discovery” is Boston-based Darlingside. Even after listening to this song at least two hundred times, it still gives me chills:



Gorgeous, right?

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
