Didn't you always hate those essays? Right off the bat.. the instant you stepped into the classroom.. "Class, I want you to write three pages, at least 1000 words about what you did on your Summer Vacation." FUCK! It was like a verbal assault! "Please, teacher, we haven't even had time to put our books away yet!" Oh man I hated them. But now.. now it's a bit different as I actually get to do something fun on my summer vacay.

Anyway.. here's part 1, because part 2 won't happen until the 12-15th.

First.. we got up Friday morning and rented a car, my Jeep is in pathetic shape and not interested in long trips anymore. They gave us a Kia... a Kia? I was skeptical at first.. but she rode all right and the a/c works.. that's a bonus.. then we found out it cost us less to rent the rig and pay for the gas than we would have with the Jeep so .. bonus. Then we went to the larger town and got grocery stuff for the three days we would be gone. (I have to eat 6 meals a day and that would rapidly get real spendy if we went to the vendors.) Anyway.. yeah, then we realized that we had left our Festival parking pass at home.. so back home to get that.. finally we got on the road for our 3 hour drive to Eugene and Mt. Pisgah park. Got all checked in and changed and decorated and headed off to Faerieworlds!

Faerieworld, where little girls that have Peter Pan envy never have to grow up. A place where " those who live on the fringe feel at home." . A land of myth and magic, of fantastic costumes, joyful music and an air of festival reigns. Ahhh yes. Faerieworld. The bands were amazing, the vendors many and varied, the traveling players (jugglers, fire dancers, belly dancers, pirates, you name it) kept everyone entertained. My friend Ed, a Pagan Priest in his own right; and I performed a handfasting for a very nice couple. (handfasting is a pagan marriage ceremony and yes it can be legal) We danced, we sang, we stalked gorgeous pixies.. it was wonderful. Two days of magic. We chose not to stay for the Sunday closing.. too depressing. My very favorite band was there! They had the place rockin! sigh.. so much fun.

Then on Sunday, we decided to meander on home. On the way we stopped at the Oregon Vortex, kind of a bizarre place, that.. made me feel queasy and all the hair on my arms and the back of my neck stand up.. but way cool.

And that's pretty much it.. came home and passed out til early this morning.

Here's a slideshow that has mixed up pictures.. all the stuff that shows wooden cabin structures are from the vortex.. the rest are from FW. Yes.. I'm in a couple of them

Ooh, I saw a Netiyiri, baby faeries, mama faeries, a band, a guy in a crown made of No2 pencils but no Skwirls only Sam.

After seeing that slideshow, it reminds me how lame Florida is, but I'm glad you had a good time.

Yeah those are cool. There was one at Knott's Berry Farm in southern California. I remember the first time I went there and saw it, I was around eight. I was in awe, especially when the guide put an orange on a table and the orange appeared to roll uphill.
