We arrived early for a potluck, music, and to enjoy good company. Jon is one of my heroes, and I think he'd be embarrassed for me to gush any further, so I'll stop there.
Will made the journey from PA for the lecture. Sigrid stayed up past her bedtime to smile at everyone, watch the birds, and listen to the old time bluegrass.
It was a special evening. The hall was packed until there was standing room only, and people spilling out into the halls.
What a treat, and an inspiration.
