Be Still My Halloween Heart

The weekend was a blur of orange and black, uplifted spirits, friendly faces and whole barrel of fun. I so look forward to this weekend each year, but find myself a bit let down afterwards. I wish all of my shows were of this caliber and amusement. I was able to go around quickly to some of the other artists' tables and take some photos of their talented offerings. Most gone like a witch flying past the harvest moon on Halloween eve by the end of the first hour of the show. So feast my friends, and savor the delicious works of some of the best folk artists in the country gathered once a year at Halloween and Vine, Petaluma, CA. Be inspired, be joyful, and see you next time.
