Like I talked about in Overlooked Pigeons, I have been trying to be a better receiver of gifts. I’m trying to allow myself to be more open to receiving and to let my appreciation be known. Lately I’ve been very lucky to have received some tickets to Merlefest from my cousin David and invitations to camp on-site from Brad and Sarah as well as Kate. I had planned to stay home and work on the house and bike over the weekend, but how do you turn down an offer like that? So I rode out on Deseo, the Motorcycle, and camped off her for the first time. I had everything I needed (but I really didn’t need more that a tooth brush and a tent) and the weekend came off great despite a good bit of rain. Levon Helm was hands down one of the best shows I’ve seen in a while. I’ll post a link to it once the Merlfest site posts the audio.
