This heat wave has my mind wandering, mainly to October. However, it also reminded me that Folkmoot is less than a month away. I guess that's because it's always hot during Folkmoot. The organizers decided that it would be a great idea to invite dancers from all around the world to come perform for us wearing heavy, elaborate costumes during the most miserably hot part of the summer. What could be more fun? I endure the miserable climatic conditions because I can get shots like the one above without leaving Haywood county. Besides, there's sweet tea and air conditioning waiting for me back at my computer!
