ClaireBear FSGW Getaway 2012 (401* d) RE: FSGW Getaway 2012 03 Oct 12

I am just back at a computer for the first time after flying home yesterday.

The Getaway grows more magical every year, and it sinks its roots deeper into my soul. Kudos to its FSGW planners and realizers, and thanks so much for welcoming us weary travelers home each year.

I didn't take photos, but I brought home many vivid memories. The workshops and mini-concerts were fabulous as always, the evening concerts brilliant, and the all-night Peace sessions (all three of them) unforgettable -- though, after three nights of hardly any sleep, I am having trouble remembering much of anything.

Here are a few highlights I do seem to recall: Amos was in fine fettle at his mini-concert and as gallant as ever throughout the long weekend. Kendall and Jacqui's performances get more flawless each year and bring more tears. Janie sang quietly this year but was as compelling as ever. Genie remains irrepressible, Jeri poignant and sharp-witted, Joe wholesome and charming, CeltAddict and Mmario wonderful to hang with, Ferrara and Bill D (who hosted Micca and me on Thursday night) sweet and welcoming, Ranger1 strong and funny, Tinker outrageous and profound, RiGGy a great new contribution to the Getaway's Mudcatter contingent, Charley highly entertaining, Rapparee great fun....

Oh, and that Max fella? Totally rocks.

Claire, who's falling asleep at the keyboard
