So now that I've had some time to recoup from an awesome camping trip, it's time to put all my thoughts together in a post. I've already done some thanking on other social media, but I would like to reiterate how thankful I am to try my Play Me show at a festival. If you haven't gone, you should check out Doahfest.com and see them next year.
On the topic of the festival, I met a bunch of crazy characters. The number one being Doug. Sadly I didn't have time to get a picture with the man, but he's been hitchhiking for the past four years and is a festival junkie. He's probably one of the weirdest, and most kind hearted people I've met, and to some degree I envy him. He came to the festival on a whim, having asked a girl for a ride, and ended up volunteering for the festival and having a blast with everyone he met.
Not only did I have fun, but I learned a lot about what I can do to better my installation. Financially speaking, if things go well I have two big plans for some future installations that I think will be a lot of fun. Now, I'd like to share some adoring comments left from people. I promised I'd give a shout out to those who took the time.
