I'm sorry for disappearing this week! I feel as though I left mid conversation. I mean we were talking about important things like what knitting to bring on a near week-long adventure. Important! Unfortunately, I got swept up in less exciting decisions like how to get a few thousand magazines from Burlington, VT to Unity, ME when Plan A fails and there are only 24 hours left before the fair opens. And other things like that. But we are here! And so are the magazines! And so is the amaranth! And so is help, in all the many forms that it appears - from colleagues to strangers, from friends to my friends' children. I am reminded over and over of that - the way that it takes a village to do much of anything, really. So grateful I am for that village. And so grateful I am to be heading into a weekend celebrating just that - community, connection, and common ground.
If you're headed to the Common Ground Country Fair, I hope you have a most wonderful time! And if you'd like, please do stop by to say hello (and see what I brought for knitting!), grab a magazine, and enter our fun daily raffles. We'll be in the media area, eager to say hi and to sit a spell with visitors.
Wishing you all -regardless of where you will be - a great weekend ahead!
