Island Breath is off the Grid

SUBHEAD: We will be off the grid at the Great Blue Heron Music Festival for the next three days. No posts until afterwards.

We have been going to this festival for the last twenty years... as long as we've been married. Our children grew up there and our friends grew gray. It's held a couple of miles from our old home in western NY. The proprietor is a good friend. The event is held on 300 acres of pastures and woods surrounding a 5 acre lake with an island in it.

 Since moving to Kauai, Hawaii, we've missed a few. This year should be a good one. About 5,000 people will camp for three days to listen and dance to an eclectic blend of music into the wee hours.
