Saturday took me to Lewisboro, NY, just across the border from western CT for a small town harvest festival for kids. Pumpkin decorating, inflatable bouncers, popcorn, hot chocolate and cookies, a magic show and me. I was on a stage backed by a pond, big yellow trees overhead, and a blue sky. After about a half hour, kids and parents drifted off to the many other events, which was understandable, so I backed off the sound system and sat down with my mandolin – sure enough, some dads and kids gathered around and we had a great time just playing. Perhaps I should have done that to begin with. A pleasure to be out in the world as the leaves change.
