yesterday i got to go to the summer meltdown to perform with my instructor's troupe, the shuvani gypsy dancers. here we are, and my daugher is with us. it was a great time, and there were vendors and music and lots of interesting folk everywhere. down by the river, there were lots of stacks of rocks that people had balanced everywhere. more pictures of everything can be seen on the website for summer meltdown here. i hope i get to go next year too!
