AT THE PEACE FESTIVAL
The 8th Annual Peace Festival at the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas was a lovely event. This was my first time there. It always seemed to happen at a time when I was away (at least the 2 previous ones). We arrived early as people were setting up.
My dear friend Rosemary ably assists me in getting the PEACE panels ready to hang. You can see that it is pretty smokey, but it didn't hamper everyone's enthusiasm for the day.
Jacob got the banners flying!
And just as the festivities began, I discovered that my camera's image card was still in my computer back in town. I got this one shot and then---no memory.
Alas there are no pictures to really show how lovely everything was.
Throughout the day and into the night, the banners continued to dance in what thankfully was a breeze. I am told that winds come up suddenly in this valley and have been known to carry off the whole stage and many an unsuspecting tent.
I've been searching to find some more pictures of the festival, but you'll have to go to the Ewam Facebook page.
The banners came home after the festival to say hello to Gary. I will be taking one panel with me when I go to John C Campbell Folk School in a couple of days.
When I return, I will tell you the plans for the banners. Stay tuned.
