I took so many pictures, enamored as I was. But my favorite things were not to be captured.
*Sitting around the campfire, raising our voices to the stars. By chance, we even sang a version of the Om Namah Shivaya song!
*The surprise of finding a note from the fairies and gnomes on our tent with an awesomely artsy t-shirt.
*Playing Mafia with the older kids and adults after the little ones were nestled peacefully in their tents. The patchwork of clouds and stars overhead. And the clap of thunder at a particularly suspenseful moment.
*The communal parenting among my friends is always deeply moving. I love how we interact with and see the best in each others' children (even when they're overstimulated and hungry). How we see the best in each other.
What gifts! I am deeply touched....
