I'm not quite as cool or forgiving as I sound.
~ Mr. Bob Dylan, from Floater (Too Much to Ask)
I'm about to lay bare just how cool and forgiving I am not. I probably stand to alienate a lot of potential readers, but I am nothing if not forthright and I did warn that there would be sanctimony.
The Wanderlust Festival came to town this week. Under normal circumstances, I would have about as much interest in partaking of the festival's activities as I would in going to Disneyland or Las Vegas or a Phish concert, which is to say: less than none. But friends of ours had signed on to volunteer so that they could participate, and we offered them lodging here for a few days. In browsing through a schedule left on the kitchen counter, I noticed that Joel Salatin was scheduled to speak on Sunday morning.
