What better way to immerse in a story-telling consciousness than to go to a Renaissance Fair?
Here in Colorado there is a huge one which runs weekends in July, so we went. Wenches, kilted lads and lasses, knights, kings and queens, fairies and elves and even a hobbit -- there were so many wonderful outfits and fun costumes. Next year we will dress up.
In the meantime - here are some fun characters who will be showing up in my journal:
"Drunken with what? With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you will. But be drunken." --Eugene O'Neill
