Thread Name: After the Getaway -- 2013
Subject: RE: After the Getaway -- 2013
Sunday concert included "The Basque". by Tim Russell, and a tip o the hat to Captain Morse. Other workshops and free-for-all sessions included songs beyond count. The aftermath, as with every Getaway, is a head ringing with scintillating fragments of beautiful songs, and images of their beautiful singers.
The magic island, Brigadoon, has a definition of "a place that is idyllic, unaffected by time, or remote from reality. " (Merriam Webster). My perception is that these intervals of solace and respite actually restore the batteries of reality, and fuel the endurance needed to walk through the cold months ahead until another Getaway becomes possible.
That's one way of looking at it, anyway.
