Subject: RE: FSGW Getaway 2002 Memories
I will always remember that "What I Learned From Folk Legacy" workshop. The emotional level was as high as it could be. Hearing the songs and stories brought home just how significant to folk music, and loved, Folk Legacy and Sandy and Caroline are. This was summed up at the end, although not with words. We stood and held hands to sing the last song. (I think it was Caroline who started it.) All of us in that room were bound together with our love of music, and our love for the Patons and one another. They make love and music inseparable.

Tinker, I think we got to that stage where we were like a litter of puppies, with absolutely no concern for personal space. I can't wait to see the video.

I didn't notice a separation between FSGW and Mudcat folks. We were people at the Getaway. By the time I left, I was hugging anyone who didn't get away fast enough.

To paraphrase Allan: "We will all know the choruses to each other's songs." Yep.
