There are good things to come...

...from Mumford & Sons. I have seen it with my own two eyes...standing in the freezing rain surrounded by dedicated festivarians, snow falling on the mountains around us. 'Twas a beautiful scene. What a weekend. I couldn't find videos from this particular weekend up yet, but here is a taste (These people are much warmer than us...I couldn't stop shivering for hours after the show yesterday. Hours. Worth it? Without a doubt.):

Who's going to the mountains this weekend?!

----->this girl<----- I'm pretty ready to get this party started. Here's a taste of what I'm in for.... are these guys adorable (and amazing) or what?!

and another Mumford show in the box canyon?! Yes please!

Add to this list The Decemberists, Robert Plant, Punch Brothers, Abigail Washburn, Sam Bush, Old Crow Medicine Show, Jerry Douglas...I could go on. Throw in some of the most amazing people I'm lucky enough to call friends and its no wonder I can't wait to get on the road Thursday.

Now I just have to conquer packing... and Nebraska.

Is it ski season yet?

I know, I can't believe I'm saying that. It's barely summer. But watch this and tell me it doesn't make you wish you plucking ski gear off the heater (or the floor, if you're one to take the apres to extreme) and dragging aching quads out for another day on the slopes.

summer, please linger

I stood on the sidewalk today and soaked myself in the hot sun and heavy, humid wind. I have waited months for this moment -- many long, mountain-less winter months. I will savor summer this year. Every glorious, glistening drop. I will trust those moments, if nothing else. The here. The now. The hazy, humid lingering moments of a season that pulls at humanity to slow and savor. Look up, smile. Breathe. Lounge. Nourish. Play. Grow.
