The Unexpected

I am an optimistic, but sometimes reluctant camper. I enjoy the anticipation and planning stages and this year I even bought a much larger tent. My mind and my spirit love the idea of camping so much. My body, however, often wants to check in at The Marriott. Last weekend I camped for a couple nights while showing at the Berkshire Arts Festival in Great Barrington, MA. The trip was great. The people were interesting and engaged. The camping was, well, challenging.
