    I just had a wonderful time yesterday. Jamming, singing, munching... then watching the sun set and the fireflies come out... I couldn't have asked for warmer or kinder people to share with. Thank you so much for coming!

    I have never been with better people. All is great; music is wonderful; and like being with long time friends. We even planned for the next time. You made my day and I still feel the warmth of love in my heart, music in my soul...

    I'll do my best to see if I can make it. Since I'm on a nocturnal schedule, hopefully I can wake up early enough to make it on time.
