I thoroughly enjoyed our trip to King Richard's Faire in Massachusetts last weekend. I hadn't attended one in 10 years, and Amy had never seen one. It was refreshing to see people, especially young people, expressing themselves in healthy ways that our culture tends to marginalize or even demonize.
I'm going to write an essay about that, right after the wine book, and the next novel, and the 40 essays and stories that are in my "working" file.
In the meantime, check out these excellent photos we got of the pageantry and wonder of fantasy anachronism in action.
