Wonderful weekend in Middle Tennessee for a show (and I got to visit a friend to attended LIA with me.) The Cookeville performance went VERY well with an amazingly diverse crowd that went from high school students to eldery Quakers with plenty of genderqueer radical faeries, middle-aged lefties, college students and straight couples in the mix.
I was hosted by Diana and Annie at the Hidden Springs Orchards. They run the Hidden Springs Nursery, that provide organic, pest-resistant specialty fruit trees. Needless to say I had the freshest organic produce possible, amazing blueberry jam and wine AND something I have always wanted to try–Acorn bread. (Acorns are one of the most nutritious foods on the planet and take FOREVER to peel, leech and prepare, but hmm, very good.
I also met some amazing people including Miriam and Indigo, a lesbian couple from Bristol, England who are in the states for a few months to learn about organic farming. Loads of fun!
Oh! and I got to see the divinity herself, Suzie Crashcourse (formerly Cynaide), who currently resides at a queer commune near Cookeville. What a thrill to see this individual who is a living work of art and activism.
