Indigo in the Blue Ridge Mts.

Blue Ridge mts.

How long has it been since I’ve been in the mountains? I cannot really remember…but as usual, I was reflecting again on that faraway place. It doesn’t really take much, especially in summer.

We (my family) used to take August for a month in the mountains (Japan) nearly every summer (in childhood). We had a small rustic cabin in the woods, on Lake Nojiri. There were cooling breezes, insect song, muddy paths along a rice paddy (somewhere in there), fogs that rolled in on the lake and much, much more. I was looking forward to similar when we went up to Glendale Springs.

It wasn’t quite the same, of course, but evenings were pleasantly cool with thick fog and it rained nearly everyday. I missed the beetles and cicada, although we had some fat bumblebees.

To be able to mix those memories with indigo worked just fine. It was grand, actually.  Many, many thanks to our hosts and fabulous participants.
