with highlights from this year's Renaissance Festival 2019.
"What I know for sure is this:
You are not built to shrink down to less,
but to blossom into more.
To be more splendid.
To be more extraordinary.
To use every moment to fill yourself up."
"Sometimes we spend so much time and energy
thinking about where we want to go
that we don't notice where we happen to be."
There's so much more to a book than just the reading.
quotes Maurice Sendak
It's how I feel while attending a Renaissance Festival.
There's so much more than just being there.
Oh my goodness, haven't you ever met a Grey Elf Before?
"Elvish singing is not a thing to miss,
in June under the stars
not if you care for such things."
It's not just people doing it!
"Dogs are not our whole life,
but they make our lives whole."
(take time in life to greet those that enter your day.)
Precious beauty captured in stonework.
You know someone is special when their absence
is felt deeply within.
It is good people who make good places.
You always hear incredible new names for dogs
at a Renaissance festival.
Like the pup following behind Karina.
So many slithering friends to meet!
"The snake stood up for evil in the garden."
Of course you know there's a dragon on your shoulder?
Someday if not already, someone will create a
Renaissance Festival Museum.
What a sight that will be.
"Museums are places
where we're taught to pay attention."
Isn't that how we should
experience everywhere we go?
