It seems the older I get the more I seem to be in need of an annual road trip. A time to just get away and reflect on the road my life has gone down. These soul-searching road trips occur during the summer or fall season and usually means a trip to a music festival or sometimes a literary conference.
In the past I have journeyed to the Pacific Northwest for The Kindlings Fest on Orcas Island or to the cornfields of the Midwest for the Cornerstone Festival.
Honestly, I need to get away to refresh my soul and feed my imagination. During these times I am surrounded by people who also, like myself, feel a need to be fed by the arts. Now that might take the form of music, literature, poetry, dance, film.
Over the years I have come in contact with many who have become friends and confidants due to their love of the arts and I thoroughly cherish these times. This year I will venture to the mountains of New Hampshire for an event called Soulfest. It is scheduled the first Thursday, Friday & Saturday of August at the Gunstock Mountain Resort in Gilford, New Hampshire.
