Meeting Ellis Paul, Vance Gilbert and the amazing group of people on the Cape this summer was a jaw-dropping time full of inspiration and mind clearing thoughtfulness. I was blown away by the talent and community we built while staving off dehydration due to the heat and a lack of air conditioning. I can't wait to do it all again.
As the warm breeze blew through doors ajar,
our minds in full hum unfurled, unfolded, unobstructed.
Tasteful licks stuck in fits, unstrung from our cases untangled in bits...
With ideas buzzing through our minds
Words being thrown to paper
Drawing upon another chapter in my book
a day or two later
The freezer felt like a respite from the heat
But the minds together as one came to a heady brew
I began this adventure alas we all did too
To spur on inspiration amid scores of ideas anticipation
A free write started the flowing of ink out of our minds
the flow, a blink, drawings distorted,
submerged of the unsorted sort
As it began it ended, the fingers soar and voices hoarse
From tasteful licks stuck in fits, unstrung from our cases untangled in bits...
