I feel sorta bad about talking about the SS, because I'm acutely aware that a lot of people who would have like to come can't, and I'm just here because of a lucky accident of geography. I wish I could meet you all. Also I'm hesitant because every year I read around eleventy-billion posts about Rhinebeck and Maryland and it can get really. annoying. Yes, I am a petty person.
On the other hand, I also enjoy the festivals vicariously through the blog posts & pictures. So if you prefer, I'll shut up about it, just let me know.
