banjos in the forest

If wishes come true, the island will dry out. The trees will shake off the shock, unfurl their leaves and breathe out pure oxygen in a massive sigh of relief. The river silt coating the land after the waters receded will become fertile ground for a lush carpet of new lawn. The kind that repels mosquitoes, of course, while we are wishing. 

And the music will play.

The music will play and the festival will be fabulous.

Your city deserves one heck of a music festival. I loved the tweets coming out of Toronto begging to borrow Nenshi.

Take care. I am so hoping that the rest of the summer will be dry and all the mosquitos die before eating you alive.

It will be different this year, Eugene, but the music will play and I suspect you are right about the fabulousness.

There has been no shortage of musical fundraisers around here lately, Toccata, which is great. Here's wishing you no mosquitoes as well!
